       Really nice trail, with some steep and technical sections at the beginning and then a fast loose trail until the end, lot of fun on this one

       Steep, loose and tight switchbacks for a little bit in the beginning, then fun flowy stuff through olive trees back down to the road. Some chunky and technical sections. Great views.
