Summary:
these trials are crazy, if your a beginer, i suggest doing a slower run before going flatout. you should check out the jumps before the end of the track you get some sweet air of them. The trials are suitable for all types of bikes, hardtail and duelys.

Recommended Route:
I don't recomend riding trail form the city to the trck becuse it's all up hill. but go to the look out and park your car. then go down the stairs near the look out, on the way you'll see some sweet drop offs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
if you want jump parks there are hidden parks around the city

Summary:
have fun there are things that come out of no where so be careful and it is a very good place to make a movie me and my mates just did.there are tracks for any type of rider.

Recommended Route:
everywhere but try to find tracks that arnt used all the time they are fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
none up blackhill but if you go over to eagle view just up from middlands golf course you will see a big hill off the side of the road go for a ride there are lots of tracks but to find the best one keep going along the main dirt road go around the corner to your right and straight up is a very cooool track u can get up there by going straight up or take the 2nd path and when u get up to the top go left and left again then turn right and you will find youself at the top it is a small hill but very fast,bumpy and a great finish. you need a bike that has good brackes and is controlable ovr bumps .

Summary:
Exelent track. Rainging from old overgrown 4WD track to tight tecknicle single track. Pleanty of jumps and berms to take at fast pace. Includes a 4 ft dropoff and plenty of very steep sections.

Recommended Route:
Start from the carpark at the top an you will find a track heading down from just near the stairs. Head down and it is pretty clearly marked.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Other trails in the area are: the grreat deviding trail, Crreswic stait forrest(XC), and the Mt. Bunningyoung down hill track.
