Custom built by Veritgo Bikes owner Tim Ceci in the mid 90's, specifically to run guided mountain biking trips before Gondola access opened. Around 1.5km long, it's a machine built trail with nice and wide but steeper and rougher terrain than Hammy's. Starting from the summit of the Gondola and stretching through to the mid-way clearing, it also features a lot of rollers and small jumps to build your skills.
