Trail Description
About this trail
Several kilometres of purpose-built singletrack weaves through the forest here; some flat and some quite hilly.

Nemo is a great trail on the flat for kids and beginners.

Access most of the other trails by going up Zip and Zip Bypass. There are several nice intermediate trails to come back down on. Elberro is fun, Switchback and Switches are more technical. Magpies, Pond, Wahoo and so on are all worth a run.

Review: Back for another ride but I didn't find the magic this time round. The Tait Block of the Eskdale Mountain Bike Park offers pleasant rides in a pine forest but these are old-school trails. You won't find the fun stuff like swooping berms, table top jumps and so on that you expect in a modern bike park.

The trails seem neglected - the locals have voted with their tyres - they're out riding the new trails in Mill Block which are generally better.
