probably got the Carpark on Abbey Caves Road (googlemap it) and push up the main logging road, nothing is signposted yet ( working on it) but you will be able to see most of the trails most start or stop on the intersections ( DH/freeride trails) dirt jump pads are pretty open and in view, make sure it has been dry a couple of days before (post up in this forum i will let you know) trails are clay and well it explains itself, we have a trail map on here which is simple and old but probably useful to you if you print it out!!

happy Trails

had a bit of a session after the build today, saw some guys from Canberra over here for a bit of a blast, Tuna's tail still needs smoothing but was bloody fast when i went down it, so its on the way up...got a feel for the bypass of the stepdown seems to be quite good so we will be into the multiberms over the next couple of weeks and then smooth out the exit ramp and lower section of the trail..gonna be awesome :thumbsup:

Muahahahahah Gorse Challenge is right!!! :sly:


A little something thats helping get the word around for the Haki Bike park, sounds like it went well and everbody had a good time... Good Effort Steve and Kevin :)
the trail incorporated most of the XC trail loop but also had a bit of DH in there thru the Ressurectiuon trail which had ramps added to the drops to make it all safe.. and there was also a DH race that was held on Vendetta , i believe......Well Done All

yeh I got sick of lugging around the heavy duty tubes and double ply tires i thought i would try a light weight tube and single ply tires it took about 1kg of but yeh a lot more prone to flats might try light tubes and double ply tires. yeh bottom of the chute needs a bit of tlc :satan:
