Ride in rainYes
Flowy, downhill singletrack that starts at the bottom of School of Rock and/or Pineapple Express. Features include a wooden step up, some small berms, and rock features.
Singletrack through open forest and across a grassy coal tailings slope. After the open grassy slope it passes an abandoned brick building known as the Kenworth Shop. Below the building watch for three technical drops. Bypass them if you are not confident in their ridability. Keep the wheels on the ground if it is windy.
Warning: there is a kicker jump as the trail leaves the forest and enters the grassy slope. Bypass it unless you are experienced with this type of jump.
When accessed by riding down School of Rock, cross the pipeline, turn right (east) along the fence and cross the fence at a gate and sign indicating private property (bicycles allowed). A steel post here whistles in the wind, giving the trail its name.
The trail can also be accessed by riding up the York Creek Road from Coleman to the cattle guard, then west along the pipeline for 700m.
Uphill riding on Whistling Post is also fun if you start at the Kenworth Shop. Below that it is too steep to ride up.
This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
