No. of Reviews: 7

three north shore sections each 10-15 metres long, one nuts big drop several smaller drops, flowing burmed corners, tight switchbacks and a 4 ft drop across a creek at the end. all this in a run that you should complete in under a minute.

Summary:
The Norsh Shores are a must to ride, but I heard that some dickhead chopped it all up with an axe. Anyway, sweet jumps, sweet North Shore (if theres any left), sweet burms and tracks.

Recommended Route:
See the directions above.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Randells, SS, Mk 2, Andys, anything around Belair.

Summary:
hey man this is awesome man. the north shore is sooooooo good dude and the slalom tracks are the coolest. you can race your chums to the bottom while going over some cool jumps. there are heaps of different routes to take and many of different difficulty drops. it is the best man.
