Summary:
A F*cking raw trail. A true trail you can really make it as hard as you want. Go slow and it can be ridden by most intermediate riders, ride it VERY fast like a race and its fairly challenging. I believe middle power and lower were out when I went last, hopefully the logging is done or whatever. Sick trail, needs bigger drops though

Recommended Route:
find it yourself

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Another Roadside Attraction

Summary:
Power smart is the ultimate in what you want in a time trials trail. Tons of fast switch backs with lots of little airs. Its as hard as you want to make it just go faster....

Recommended Route:
upper, middle, bust onto pseudo psuego, then onwards to roadside attraction, follow it up by another mans gold, then the plunge" bitchy cross country down hill" then if you gots the juice into crumpit woods for either fm tower trails or five point, both are full of fun steeps rock forest and if you find the right ones a couple of nice wheelies as well

Other recommended trails in the same area:
come here first and ride with the locals

Summary:
This trail is well worth the climb. Upper and middle powersmart are the most enjoyable parts. Fast and fun and not too difficult. Upper Powersmart is very muddy in the wet and becomes a river (in the upper section)in good rain, but middle powersmart is in good shape and a much better trail. I recomend opting for pseudosuga intead of lower powersmart once you hit that point. You can skip upper powersmart but the climb is fun and the trail gets better after the initial slippery watercoated section.

Recommended Route:
The only route, climb for a little over an hour if you go fast.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
pseudosuga,another roadside attraction, another mans gold, power house plunge, crumpit woods trails (Five point Hill/meet yer maker etc..) ride in the listed order for a good ride.

Summary:
I like this trail. It was not built very well in sections at the top. The trail needs a bit of work to allow it to mature into a awesome trail. They should include this in the test of metal. Then I might be inclined to race. 70km just too short.

Recommended Route:
Ride up towards Diamond head. Keep left when you hit the switchback.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Crumpet woods, Rob's Corner and many more.
