 This is by far the best trail at BPW, bigger and gnarlier than the others and is so much fun, the shear number of rocks, roots and ruts will have you grinning from ear to ear by the end. A downtube guard is recommended as rocks do get chucked up and if you're running tubes expect a puncture at some point. Can see the BDS racing here in the future!!!

 I would agree, this is a big step up from the other trails in BPW. Large drops and gaps onto rocks and roots, no chiken runs here. It has it all if you are looking for something a little bit more technical. It's full on all the way down. Great fun.
