    Short and sweet down-sloping trail with some nice rock drops. It leads down to the Beattie Street trailhead and is an excellent way to finish off a descent from Mount Ascension after Entertainment Trail and Archery Range Trail. You need advanced skills (grade 4) to enjoy it. It's less than half a mile long.

    If you're heading up the hill (Mount Ascension) from the Beattie Street car park, go up Prickly Pear rather than Pay Dirt. Prickly Pear is a nice climbing trail and leads into Easy Rider and the 2006 Trail which will take you all the way to the summit.

    This trail is really more of a downhill trail due to a number of large rocky drops. This is disappointing because of its prime access to the Mount Ascension area from town. It looks like a blast going downhill though!
