Our climbing trail magnum opus. Takes the climbable nature of Bottoms Up, and adds some beauty forest, bridge crossings and more difficulty as you get higher into the ascent. May be ridden in the downhill direction, suitable for beginners and small travel bikes, but please respect fellow riders and yield to uphill traffic.
