You can find this trail thanks to two 50cm sticks showing the start along the road. I noticed this is only a continuity of another trail starting higher up (see trail arrival across the road which looks nice too). Except for the brief first descent this section is rather XC than DH. As the trail is natural it is not super clear to follow. See it as a connection between two nice trails (up and down) rather than a must do section.
