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. 

Longshanks is part of the Pemberton Mtb Park.

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.
