Awesome trail. Good mix of techy roots, jumps, step down, gaps, berms and rocky sections. There is lots of different options to go. There is three main lines off the top. Then after these you get into the first root section over a small burn gap (optional) then into some built up berms and tabletops, down some stairs and a nice wee drop takes you onto the halfway forest road. Off the fire road into the next half there is an option to do a gap jump or the rock garden. After this keep left for a fast section of trail which is okay but it contains the coffin jump (only for the brave) . Or you can take the line to the right for a more natural roots section. Now you are into the final section. There is the option to do some more tech lines or some big jumps the step down are the other options. The trail finishes with a fast section where you need to pedal.The other option is the elevator which is a massive steep chute which drops you onto the field The trail is very manageable on a all mountain bike as all the big features have a chicken line round them.
