Fun, flowy trail that connects to the start of Severed D. Option to link with Dickie to bypass the steep section at the start of Severed. Riders seeking a similar smooth flowy riding experience are recommended to continue to Asian Adonis (accessed via C-Buster off Severed) or John Deer. Continuing along Severed offers more technical challenge with rocky descents and several low to the ground optional skinnies.

Riders also have the option of turning right at the junction with the Baden Powell to connect to Forever After.

The trail is downhill only for mountain bikers. Do not ride uphill.

Access Info

Descending from the power line from the junction with Mushroom Trail look for the single track entrance on the left.
