Description

This is the newest and most extreme trail at The Pines, built by local trail builder Greg Prouse. It starts at the Railway Entrance at the top of the hill and flows down hill through steeps, berms, gaps and more.

This is easily the most daring trail for many miles as it features a lot of air time including the iconic gap jump across a beautiful stream. No forgiveness on this one. Bring your 'A' game. There is a viewing area to watch people hitting the gap, that is accessed from Cable Stretch.

If you would like a guided tour of this and other trails with the trail builder himself, you can contact Greg at: rag2e.co.nz/
