This trail is full of man made features. Ramps, ladders, hucks and drops. There are some berms as well but it is probably the most advanced trail in the network and one that you should maybe think about chucking on some extra padding if it's at your limit.

Riders should look at all features first before committing because some features you will struggle to roll off the end of - so it is good to know where you need to jump.

We suspect this is the most popular trail in the Lake Leschenaultia network and when we've visited it certainly seems to have the most amount of riders on it.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
