This is an amazing hidden and little known section of trails. Lots of woodwork with ride scale pushing double black make for smiles on everyone's faces. B lines ensure even moderate riders will survive but repeat visits will see your skills improve everytime. I would easily rank this as one of the top trails in WA for technical riding and flow. If you don't like these trails then you aren't a MTBer.

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.
