Top half is basically a small stream with rounded rocks everywhere. Ridable but nothing great. Weather has been pretty harsh up here for a while and it shows in this trail. Not really worth a visit on its own but a good way to hook up with Masterblaster.

Nice to see the line from the top to the dense tree has been ridden in since it was put in, not to sure if it would work. Exit to the forest road could do with a better line.

Fun, mostly grassy trail. A few section where the trail falls away off camber and the turn doesn't work.

Forest thinning recently taken place. Tree down at the top and hard to distinguish trail. Better lower down.

The new start is located just on the left as you approach the mobile mast at the top of the hill.
