Loose, natural and steep. A few small drops, 2-3 feet, all of them have roll downs on though. The trail is still working itself in, extremely loose in the wet. Still some sections of loam in areas. 5 minutes to get down at a fast pace. Lots of features/interesting bits of trail to session if you like that sort of thing, or just blast the whole thing! Not for those who love their back brake a bit too much, it won't help you here! The whole trail can be done in about 4 pedal strokes.

 Great trail. Lots of LOAM! Nice steep sections where you are going to slide but the catch berms will be there to keep you on track.

Would not be good in the wet, that loam will turn into crazy slop. Get it while you can, the dirt will not last long.

There's one wood feature about 1/4 down. Steep roller with a small drop after. It looks like a sketchy run out but its all good.

There's no sign at the trail head. The puddles on the access road are bad news. They are full of silt, do not ride in the puddles or you will stop dead and get all wet/muddy.
