This is one of the up trails in the Lake Leschenaultia MTB network - with the other being the far easier Eastern Line. The trail starts a fair way down the fire trail riding away from the rest of the network - and is probably the hardest trail to find.

Once on the trail you have a solid workout as you climb 63m for around 1.7km. This is a blue trail and a great trail to double up with Blue Panther for an old-school tight singletrack double! Be warned though this is the most taxing of all the trails out here in terms of physical exertion. Having said that, it is easy enough just to pick a low gear and spin your way up.
