Sandy Skid Rd provided an easy link between Yellow Brick Road and Pondy New.  While climbing all the way it was a very easy  graded dirt road with a very short section of single track at the end.

This was  part of an amazing XC loop on the lower mountain which started at the 8 Mile Carpark, up Hill Rd, turned right onto Reservoir Rd to Old Chevy, Yellow Brick Road, Sandy Skid Rd, Pondy New, Roller Coaster and down Reservoir Rd to the car park.  A highly recommended XC loop.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
