Right we took a trip down here today. The whole area is beautifully built, and well maintained. We got talking to a biker and the place has been developed for many years.

The area with the jumps is by no means perfect. For me a lot of the bike berms are too tight for a board, which made smooth runs into many of the jumps not ridable. Saying that riders who are more inclined to freestyle might have a different take on this. Basically we did find some lines runs we could ride, but not as many as hoped. It also has a duel slalom, but again is tight.

The single track area is a myriad of trails, and for me the best thing about this place. Some really nice features in the landscape, with dips and small drops. There is one trail that we found early on, but could then not find again. So I will be definitely be coming back to do this.

It also has a couple of fastish service tracks which would be ok to take beginners to ride on.

If I only lived 10 mins away this place would be one of my regular spots to ride. and I will definitely be coming back at some point. More lines would probably open up as you get to know the place.

We did get some video, but not that much. I will try to edit and upload it so you can see more of what its like.

Nope not going to as the place is a bit hush hush. Took ages for me to find the location. I thought best to preserve the wishes of the locals. If you want I will send you a pm with the location.

I would seriously avoid going on a weekend. The venue is club members only and is heavily sign posted as such. You will be asked to leave if caught riding there.
