I really liked this section of track, it is one of the steeper sections in main Fred Caterson Reserve area, however not a patch on the Downhill sections of The Bottom Trail and Linksley Reserve Trail.

It starts at an intersection just beyond the bridge at the bottom of the Car Park to Water Treatment Plant section.  A sharp right turn puts you straight into the climb along the fence line.

The climb is a relatively easy one with a few rocks along the way to keep you on your toes.  If you keep going all the way to the top you will end up at a grass strip and houses.  

The return descent is heaps of fun and great for new riders wanting to get comfortable on rough tight descents with a few corners.

Only 100m short of the top is a trail off to the left that is the start of the Water Treatment Plant Northern Descent and it's well worth the ride down to the rock bridge and then onto extremely fun Bottom Trail.

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.
