    CRD

Torpedo Run is Hartland's version of Crank It Up, featuring tabletops and berms. It makes good use of the elevation available. The top section was hand built and the lower section was machine built. The record for most laps in a 2 hour period is 13. It is the only downhill bike-specific machine built trail in a CRD Park.
Trail difficulty is rated Intermediate (Blue) if features are rolled; Single Black if expecting to hit all the transitions.

Access Info

Push-Up trail gets you from Centrefold to the lookout at the top of Torpedo Run. Push-up is marked well with a CRD sign.
