    Eden climb can be either jeep track, single track or a mix of both, your choice. All under cover in the pine forest
    The decent is all single track, a mix of dirt and gravel with exposed roots and rocks.
    There are various options on the way down including a small jump line near the bottom.

    G-Spot, the way I get there is via Eden.
    This is all well manicured hard pack single track. Flowy berms and jumps with one or two different line choices. Great fun.
    You can either head out at the botom or climb back up and return to your vehicle via Eden.

    Blue Gums descent is rocky and very loose stones for the first part. Becomes a little firmer the further down you go on the single track.
    There are a bunch of new options here now as the National XC champs were staged here. Too much to explain, go look for yourself.
