 Ton of fun. Fast and natural with a bit of everything along the way - rocky, loamy, steep, tight.

 I loved this unique trail! It seems to follow a century-old logging road that was blasted through the rock. Rocky but very little rubble is what makes it so special. So you end up with a long drawn-out gradual rock staircase down through the forest, matted with pine needles. Just keep moving and you never have to put your feet down as you fly down the mountain picking your way over and around obstacles. Just a blast. As an added bonus, the forest seems to strangely enclose the trail, creating a tunnel effect.
Way better than Red Rider or Momentum.
