Family Friendly Confident young riders with good handling skills would be ok on this one.

Description

This is a short but great downhill ride in the Silvan Forest mountain bike park. Head up Alpha above the arena and this track is well sign posted heading off to the left. It's a digger built track that is well formed with a few slightly steeper parts and plenty of corners which are all nicely bermed.

There's nothing too technical and most of the terrain is easily rideable by most, even children with good handling skills. The trail surface is a little bumpy in places but it's generally very good. The track rejoins Alpha again at the bottom so you can drop down and then turn left to climb back up to ride the tracks further above or turn right and head back down Alpha.
