Is that out near the lower Helena dam? Yeah it sucks out there.

Directly west of camel farm and east of Jorgensen. There were some nice trails but need to know it better because hike a bike was a bitch

Ah yes, Piesse Brook valley. Lots of downhill tracks in there, one or two actually uphill (but just as tough to ride). I mapped everything east of Piesse Brook for MTBO then decided we'd never use it because it was too steep (though we did use some of the trails at the top around the powerlines).

I'll sometimes ride the trail alongside Piesse Brook from Hummerston Rd north to the bottom of the powerlines and then back up the powerline track. Nice climb that one!

Yeah, when I was riding around the top I was thinking it would make a really nice mtbo - then I saw the decent.

I am sure if I find the right places to climb there could be some really nice stuff out there.
