Notes:

Browns runs from the top of Long Meadows back to the car park.

This single track section is quite reminiscent of Burnt Forest .. but angrier.  Steeper, rougher, bigger rocks, tighter turns (some nice steep switchbacks), narrow cuttings and nastier ruts make you really work hard over the final ascent to the car park.

The first section descends quite rapidly before handing you the final insult of the day - "Heartbreak Hill".  It's not uncommon to ride trails that end with a bitchn' climb but this has to be one of the most gnarly.  Big angry rocks, tight turns, trees and roots right where you don't want them all combined with a pretty steep gradient.  It's certainly rideable but easily defeated me on the day.

The trail ends at the eastern end of the car park. A 2nd lap anyone?

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.
