Like Turners? then head up TM2YL and give this gem of a trail a goon. This single track contains a ton of features including rocks, roots, berms, rollers, drop offs etc. its all here at a moderate grade that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. The fun drop off midway is not compulsory.

Access Info

Above the exit of Take Me To Your Leader (TM2YL) is conical shaped hill. Follow the road, then trail to the top.
