About Shakes n' Ladders, Lake Leschenaultia MTB Trails
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 you may struggle to roll off the end - so it is good to know where you need to jump.
This is the most popular trail in the Lake Leschenaultia Network and it certainly seems to have the most amount of riders on it.
