Notes:

Upper Cambourne Track runs from Cambourne Ave St Ives down to the Cascades Track (about halfway between the top and the Cascades).  A short trail of less than 600m it is an alternate entrance for the main Cascade Track

On this video I am climbing out from Cascades to Cambourne Ave.

The trail is quite steep especially at the bottom end, it's a much tougher climb than the top section of Cascades, I don't think it would be as fun to descend either as there are no waterbars and the hill is too steep to let the bike run.

The upper sections of the trail are not as steep but the track is always climbing towards Cambourne Ave.

If climbing up the hill try and hold as much momentum through the water crossing at the top because the final stretch up to the road is steep.

At the time of riding the trail was in pretty good condition with far less loose rocks than other trails in the area.

It won't be my choice of entrance or exit in the future.

About 200m from the top a trail comes in from Douglas Ave, the lower end of this trail is VERY rough with some big rocks, ruts and drops, somewhat reminiscent of the top end of Red Hill's 4WD Folly.

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.
