The latest addition to Smallwood and a long ride with a staggering view of the Vallhallas, the first half is pure XC grinding with short but stout climbs, and winding sections around a few tiny lakes. Once back into the woods, some more cross country work will get you to the second half of trail that yields a seemingly endless descent of sublime, low-angle ripping.

Access Info

Queen Victoria road in Beasley. The trailhead is a little over 12km of mostly up on good gravel road, steep in places. There is a sign post in a clearing to the left the trail is immediately off the road to the right marked by stones. There maybe another a few hundred metres further.

 Once you begin descending, the first half has some great corners, and feels like a mountain bike trail. The second half of the descent however has very few corners at all, and feels like you’re descending an old road grade. I didn’t find it very rewarding after the long grunt to pedal up there.

 Agreed Sammy C, NCC is starting a new lower section to remove most of rail grade and last bit of logging road to Antler. Should be a huge improvement when finished.
