This fun, little, route takes approximately an hour and 15 minutes. Great for beginners or above beginner riders who want to get a good workout and get some experience mountain biking. Some sections can be a bit tricky to climb but after a few times it gets easy. Most of the downhill stuff is not techy or sketchy but there are still some opportunities for small jumps off logs and rocks.

The first 500 meters of the climb seems to have been washed out with all the heavy rain so climbing is a bit more difficult than before.

Trying to ride this in the up direction from the parking there is a lot of braiding and it's quite confusing.
