An easy trail that extends the novice rider with a long descent. With corners, small natural berms, rollers and whoops there is lots to keep you happy as you head downhill.

Longshanks is accessed via the trailhead at the north side of the ‘Pump Hill’ trails. It shares its entry with Drop Bear, but forks to the left a few metres in. 

The trail is suited for beginner to intermediate riders, though everyone is bound to get something out of the flowy, swooping descent. The flatter section at the top gives way to corners, small natural berms, whoops and rollers as you descend the hill, before popping you out with some speed onto Rainbow Trail. There are some technical aspects, including a few pinch climbs and steeper rollovers that may challenge beginner riders.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.

Supported by great organisations
