New trail off Microwave Tower – “Dirt Diggler”

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

This trail is in keeping with Al Matador – steep and unforgiving. Expect lots of tight technical single-track and powdery chutes. The photos have captured some of the ride.

You can find this trail at the top of the first climb of Al Matador – look for a pile of rocks and drop in if your dare! Also see the GoogleEarth map with a GPS overlay courtesy of P. Gilmar.

Many thanks and appreciation to the builders who have spent many days labouring on this fine trail.
