One of the best tracks in central gorge! super flowy and at a few stages a little tech spice, a great little track no major issues only minor erosion. would recommend.

Cool track, this track is not for a rider afraid of heights, because this track basically runs perpendicular to a cliff face. minor erosion and some low hanging trees, but nothing that needs desperate work besides, it makes the trail more interesting.
