    Fairly easy to find once you're climbing Mountain Highway, it's after the 5th switchback and the kink. The entrance will be well marked.

    Thx. Parking recommendation?

    Just another 500 miles and I'll be there.

    There's a bunch of prohibited neighbourhood parking, so the best bet is some street parking along Dempsey Rd near the Kilmer playing fields between Hoskins and Lynn Valley Road. Then you can ride up Hoskins to McNair to get to Mountain Highway.

    That parking spot puts you in a good position to try out the downhill section from Circuit 8 down to Fisherman's Trail from the same parking spot. It looks like lots of rain forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Bring your grippy tires for the wet roots.

    I don't know if you had a chance to check out this little section (circled), it's short but incredibly steep, especially if it's wet. The east loop of the stage is a fun ride as well.
