Warm up on the flatter, twisty riverside trails before gaining altitude on the up tracks and sending it as fast as you dare on the way back down. Tackle the trails from Hazeldine Road including the tight and twisting Cork Screw, then keep up the cadence as you head through Caros. Be rewarded by dropping into Fly by Night and take a bite out of Rhys Pieces before cooling your heels on the ride down the Gully.
You’ll feel like you’re flying when you tackle Mystic’s Hero Trail. Deep manicured berms, big table tops and gap jumps, ramps and a whole lot of fun; the trail is the jewel in Mystic Hill’s crown. If big gravity is your thing then get yourself up here and ride or shuttle to the top, you’ll be smiling from ear to ear after just one run.
Let's get technical
Now you've warmed up, hit up The Eiger, Elevation and double black Mystic DH for tight, twisty, technical turns.
