Narrow track, steep in places and lots of tree roots to keep you honest. Finishes with a steep tree root covered chute and a medium sized drop onto a walking track. Keep an eye out for walkers. Upper level intermediate when dry, more difficult when wet due to slippery tree roots.

Access Info

Normally ridden by starting on Hippies at the summit carpark, where Hippies drops onto the walking track V starts with a little banked climb on the left that then drops you back across the walking track and down into the first part of V. It crosses one more major walking track, into the main part of V and finishes onto the third walking track. Often ridden along with A which starts across the third walking track at the exit of V.
