Grade: Black (severe)
Start point: From BaseCamp MTB follow the forest road up past the Bike Park to join the start of the trail.
Aimed at the expert riders, the black route is a demanding, technical trail. Tight and testing, it has a multitude of rock features, sizeable drop-offs, stone staircases, boulder fields and rock slabs – and there aren’t any chicken runs for the faint of heart.
The trail begins with a fire road climb which leads to a narrow climb through boulder fields and stunning scenery to the Wolf’s Lair viewpoint. Enjoy the view while you can, because after that, all you’ll focus on are the evil features a couple of metres before your front wheel on the way down. Wolftrax really bares its teeth on this very technical wilderness rock-fest!
Features include the back, sack and crack attack - a triple rock slab feature that gives you an insight into the mind that designed this course - and the fearsome Devil’s Chessboard, a 40-metre rock slab staircase with 24 different levels, a real test of skill and endurance.
The black route is one-way use only, but clear the treacherous trail features, and you can celebrate with a tear down the Bike Park back to BaseCamp.
Helmet, gloves, elbow and knee protection recommended!
