Great twisty, droppy fun trail that flows downhill perfectly right now. Just enough moisture in the trail today. I great drop round a tight right handed bend could catch out the unaware rider.

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Steep section at bottom apart from that I wouldn’t rate this a black, definitely red

       @Tomr222 make sure to vote the difficulty then... The grade may change with enough votes... Should be riding this trail tonight first time : ). Tatties is also graded black for some reason, should be red.

      This trail needs cut in 2 as well - Upper and Lower, because it also runs on Smell My Fingers
