In 2015, following the construction of Majura Parkway, professional trail builders, Jindabyne Landscaping, were engaged. They constructed the flow trails on winery hill and at the southern end of the forest. Quite different in style to the other trails at Majura, they have proved to be hugely popular.
The southern end of Majura Pines offers some of the biggest and best descents in the network. There are three great downhills, some challenging climbs and some old school two way XC as well.
The fastest descent is probably Rock Lobster. A series of berms, rollers and jumps will guide you down. The biggest jump is saved for last, right next to the fire road where there might even be a crowd to watch you.
Starting from the same point as Rock Lobster is Barry. Not quite as steep but still plenty of jumps and lots of fun. When Barry ends, Planet Claire takes over to continue the fun all the way down to the grassed area alongside Love Shack on the XC loop. Turn left here to head off on to the XC trails; right to start the climb back up again where you came from.
The climbs that access these trails are, on the lower slopes AJs Leap and Boy Wonder. After the Hackett gate entrance, there is only one way up to the top: Larry. Pause for a moment to look back on the view before setting off on another run of Rock Lobster or Barry.
