Despite the intermediate grade this trail is a great laugh and would be a good way for beginner riders to progress onto something a bit rougher. Some easier rock and root sections but all with good grip in muddy conditions.

Although it is only an "intermediate' trail and could easily be traversed by a beginner rider, it is also extremely fun for more experienced riders to barrel down at high speed. Nice corners, some small jumps if taken quick enough. Tightish banked turns. A good track to take every now and again if 491, Freewheel etc are getting stale.

The uphill portion has a lot of very tight switchbacks and will get the heart rate racing. The downhill is a very well designed but the surface suffers in the wet forest. At the harder end for an intermediate trail.
