“An unimproved trail which provides an extended downhill from John Cousins Walking Track.”— Andrew James
Family Friendly This section of the trail features no difficult obstacles or steep descents. The bridge is wide with side rails and can be crossed easily on or off the bike.
The first half of the trail runs downhill toward the university allowing you to hold a significant amount of speed from the steep descent on the most recent section of John Cousins Walking Track. A somewhat intimidating off-camber right hander can still be taken at speed if you're game then the trail starts to level out as it approaches the back of the uni.
The halfway point is marked by a gate connecting to the university and the trail leads downhill toward a bridge over a (usually dry) creek bed. The ends of the bridge are not flush with the ground so riders will need to slow down or bunny hop onto the bridge to avoid pinch flats/rim damage. After the bridge the trail leads uphill for a while then levels out before rejoining with the John Cousins Walking Track.
