Tricky start with lots of rocks and roots and little drops. The trail opens out and becomes easy and is a great long ride down and back to the Gorby trail.

Great last run to the valley bottom after a day of riding the FAR bike park

Access Info

Head up Gorby Trail and turn right and head about 1,000m up the trail that takes you away from Cedar Bowl. Also accessible if you are riding out of FAR. A steep up in the road is just before the trailhead, and the access road then heads sharply left and down. The trail is just on top of a little mound in front of you before you turn left.

      4 spots with trees down - one near the top definitely requires a good sized chainsaw, and the others would be better done with a chainsaw but...

       Great top third (rooty and loamy), meh middle third as you blast through an old skid road, and great bottom third (loose dusty turns with some more roots). Would ride again.
