First try and loved it. Great berms. Rooty, flowing with ruts and some pedalling bits. Quite long too. Praise to the trail builders. Some rollable drops and a hint of red trail in places. Will be back

Done it as the sun was going down however the trail flows so nicely that it opens up in front of you. Love how the trees get tighter and tighter the closer you get to the end of the trail. Goes on for a lot longer than you expect. A wee hidden gem

Nice we run through the trees. Jumps start small then get bigger and bigger just before the berms. Quite addictive so get ready to climb back up to do it again and again!!!!!

Great route. The conditions are perfect at the moment, you really have to pump it though to keep some speed up

Good climb up. Couple of fallen trees to contend with early on.
Good view at the top!
