If you climb to descend this would not be the trail for you. If you look at your Strava and see how much elevation you have gained this is a trail for you. From west to east the first climb starts easy and becomes pretty brutal. If you do not have good fitness you may have to push some sections. East to west there are two corners I need mote fitness to get. More interesting to the west. Well done trail builder I will be back.

Hiking? Sure. I almost beat my gf for recommending this trail to bike on. 2kms straight up a f*cking mountain on some really rough terrain. The incredibly short and steep ride down also sucks balls. No features. Rough terrain. Hike this trail. Don't bike this trail.

Grind to reward ratio is very very high. Couple of fun tech features. No desire to ride it again

Great trail for beginners who want to build some confidence on more challenging terrain (in spots) without the fear of gaining to much speed. My wife is new to biking and loved it. For more advanced riders there’s enough to keep things interesting with a few optional jumps and drops along the way.

Curious: Is the elevation listed in the description of this ride correct? The map's contours show the trail not crossing the 1600m elevation. My GPS clock the highest point at 1581m, which seems to match the map and not the description...
