The ride is downhill 80% of the way with a steep final kick as you climb the road out of the National Park to Glenbrook Village. While there is a some climbing in the first half of the ride, once the helipad is reached at the halfway mark, it's one long fun downhill run.
As the trail winds its way along ridge tops make sure you take the time to have a look around as some excellent views of the lower Blue Mountains can be had. On a clear day you can see all the way to Sydney CBD.
