This is a  great way back to the core trails from the Katore Rd area.  Descend either Katore Jumps or Paddy's Run and turn left up Spruce  Rd to Tickler.

Tickler has some tricky root steeps along a narrow and  sometimes steep descent (keep an eye out for more difficult A-Line routes),  however the downhill section is short before hitting the creek at the bottom.

The  official Tickler trail continues off  to the right however the tip I was given was to head left, ride up the creek a  short way then turn right up the K2 climb toward Redtank Rd / Pipeline Rd.  

While the  single track climb of K2 is  reasonably steep it wasn’t beyond me.   From the top of the single track I turned left up the access road until  I reached Redtank Rd / Pipeline Rd turning right up toward the end of Hot X Buns and the start of Be Rude Not To 2.

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.
