very steep and off camber sections with several large and difficult features, some very fast flowy sections here too, ending at a bridge then a fairly mellow trail to exit out to the road.

      rode the bottom bit after Burning Ears then back to Uphill Battle - some mud bogs and ruts but it's drying out, 100% rideable

       Greasy off camber. Treacherous when wet
