Course Description

The trail has a rich history and is known for it’s amazing build quality and attention to detail. It is a pure downhill trail.

The exciting trail contains an abundance of features including smooth jumps, exciting drops, fun fast sections and challenging natural obstacles planned and built around the natural shapes of our beautiful forest.

Some features to get excited for are the iconic log drop which sends riders off a fallen tree into some super fun turns and into the natural terrain of roots and rocks in the slippery forest. The trail is loaded with jumps of all sizes to enhance speed and skill and to clear natural landscapes.

There's some fun lines for all to manage and bigger gaps for the fast guys and girls. We've prepared a course full of natural obstacles and carefully planned lines that tempt a rider to go for the gap to shave a few seconds off their time.

This course is fast at any speed you choose to ride. The venue has played host to some record breaking major events over the years thanks to Coffs Downhill with exciting future events to be staged in conjunction with Clarence Valley Mountain Bike club.
