      Sehr viel Laub im Trail. Nicht immer einfach zu finden & fahren.

      This trail has a bit of everything: machine made bikepark-like flow line, several rock/root sections, wooden bridges & some low berms, but most of all A LOT of loose rocks/gravel and very straight lines down the mountain. NOT a good MTB trail…

      Am 15.7.2021. Trail war feucht aber mit gutem Grip. Teilweise ausgewaschen.
      Technisch relativ einfach ohne nennenswerte Drops aber recht rauh (gutes Material hilft). Oberer Teil gut präpariert.
      Spass!

      Pessimo, interventi di manutenzione poco pensati: vengono aggiunte nuove strutture (che non sono neanche chissà che cosa), ma il resto della pista è totalmente erosa dall'acqua.
      Le curve con appoggio si interrompono a metà e i salti sono concepiti per essere presi a bassa velocità il che richiede un uso eccessivo dei freni.
      Totalmente sconsigliata se volete pagarvi il biglietto la pista non vale la spesa se invece volete guadagnarvi la discesa la regione offre percorsi migliori.
      Peccato: inizialmemte era una pista piacevole adatta a tutti i livelli, adesso è una pietraia massacrante.
      Il tutto grazie alla mania di grandezza degli enti locali, che nin sono capaci di accontentarsi delle cose semplici.

      Waren am 14.03.21 unterwegs. Der 1. Drittel komplett schneebedeckt! Unbefahrbar. Hat irgendwie geklappt, war aber sehr gefährlich, da zt grosse Eisplatten aufgrund Lawinen im Schattenhang herrschten. Trail war unsichtbar aufgrund Schnee. Zur Zeit wirklich keine gute Idee!
