GRADE: 5 (Grade 6 if it's wet) LENGTH: 0.3km


BUILT: Original build in 2005 by Dave Hamilton. In recent years it has become an option from the main Corridor trail. 


GETTING THERE: After riding the first open section of Corridor trail, drop into the pine trees and you'll soon come to three options - Left is the continuation of Corridor. Right is Eastern Spice. Straight ahead is North Face.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Steep, technical downhill with a deliberately low key approach to the build. It is natural and raw and will change as it gradually wears with traffic and weather.

This is a serious grade 5 - once it gets steep it stays steep through to the end, so don't take someone down this track in gym shoes and a $400 hardtail. It wont end well.

When the gradient eases there is an old school gap jump, with a B-line to the left. The jump doesn't have much flow so needs a reasonable amount of speed going in to clear it smoothly. It is not rollable, so don't try that!
