Cross the bridge and take the right 4 wheel-drive track that meanders up the hill through native wetlands. Ride up takes about 20-30 minutes to the top where it meets the entrance to the forest. From here it is pretty much all downhill back to the bridge. Some awesome downhill riding over pine needles with some excellent purpose built jumps thrown in for good measure. The last 500 metres has some gnarly switchbacks for an exciting climax.

Summary:
the main loop is gravel with some big stones, make sure you go up "back track" the other way is very steep. once at top there are some descent technical jumps and stuff on the way down on little side tracks, if you follow the gravel make sure you can stop on the switchback.
great fun, best trail ive seen in palmy

Recommended Route:
take back track on the way up (its the first right after ridge i believe)
