Ride-able both directions, best way seems to be from end of schadenfreude on your right. Starts on easy old single track decommissioned road, then goes through a few wet sections then ascends a mild slope onto a nice ridge with some steep drop offs on your left, watch your track on what some might consider a few intimidating drop offs as the trail follows the cliff line.As the cliffs descend in height the trail veers away and into the forest eventually coming out on an old bushy road and back towards Schadenfreude.
