easy enough to be blue. largely flat, winding single track. worth doing to make the green more interesting if able to handle blue.

flowing winding singletrack largely level to slight downhill. couple of rollable bombholes with detours round available. This is really a Blue there is nothing steep and the TTF's are not hard and also avoidable.

The techy bit is rollable, but line choice is important. As others have stated, above “red” in my opinion too. A couple of large ruts after the rocks to look out for.

This section has what I consider the most challenging obstacle on the red route, drop off through rocks. Great fun but challenging.

Be aware! Not for novice riders. The 2nd part of this trail has a difficult technical rock section

Very mellow flow trail with small berms. Nice but nothing special.

Great flowy upper part. The lower part is more demanding
