This is the highest trail in the Mount Hutt Mountain Bike Park - it's right up in the clouds. It starts and ends on the skifield access road.

It's a rocky, stony, jittery trail, neither downhill nor cross country. There are some sweeping curves near the top and some tight stony switchbacks further down. It's quite steep in places where it's become bit hollowed out.

Ideally you'll get a shuttle drop-off at the top. Otherwise park at the top of Treeverse Trail where there is a mapboard and a small car park on the left as you go up the skifield access road.

    If you love loose rocks and stones then the Scott Saddle Express could be for you. I didn't like it. The trails further down are better.
