Katore Jumps was a trail Iíd not expected to ride, but on  the final day I opted to ride it as an alternative to Paddy's Run on the way to Tickler.

Katore Jumps is an old skid road and therefore it runs  pretty straight down to Spruce Rd and the start of Tickler.  As the name implies Katore Jumps is a jump track, full of gap jumps, rollers and a few  doubles however by the heavy ground cover it doesnít appear to get a lot of  traffic so I would recommend scoping the jumps first.

As seen on  the video Iím not a huge fan of jumps so I went around virtually all of them,  something easily done.  Listening to  other riders at the trail head they were saying that most of the jumps at the  bottom required some speed checking.

If you are  more into the descents than XC then Katore Jumps would be a better and faster alternative to Paddy's Run if youíre heading toward Tickler.

Katore Jumps starts from Katore Rd, a short way uphill beyond Paddy's Run and comes out on Spruce  Rd just short of the start of Tickler.

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.
