Once a climbing trail, Trigger Happy has been transformed to a new and stylish descent. The trail leaves from the base of the Medusa climb and joins onto the final single-track section of the Wollybutt descent. Trigger Happy is officially now part of the EPIC trail.

      Good downhill, better than Wollybutt which is just a gravel track. Ebikers are better going uphill on the road, as this is very twisty and turny.

       This is now a one way descent and has been rerouted to join the burms at the bottom of the Woolybutt (after the steep loose firetrail part) Its all just been redone and is awesome.
      Unfortuently this means there's no way to ride back up and join medusa or other trails back to the village. The suggested route is to ride back to the village via the back gravel road which is ok but a little boring.
      If you have an ebike with lots of battery to spare you can ride up the Woolybutt fire trail (don't ride up the Woolybutt single trail as this is super dangerous with riders depending at speed) at the road intersection but the first 300m are super steep and very loose. Once you get to where trigger-happy and Woolybutt meet its a lot easier to continue on the fire trail but watch for riders coming down. Its about 2klm to medusa of loose rock and very steep so without an ebike you've got no hope really.
      While its great they've improved trigger-happy so much but its a real pain theres no way to really get back up. This means out and back to stonefly via medusa and misty twisty is no longer a viable option for non ebike riders without some walking you now have to basically descend the river trail or alpine epic to merimbah and get the shuttle up.
