       Over 20 trees on the trail (woodwork) after col du haag.

      Very interesting trail. At the beginning ont the Grand Ballon is the trail quiet rocky and furthermore there were many hikers on the trail. But after Col du Haag - there were no hikers any more and the trail was very easy and to end it was again a little bit more difficult

       The first past down the top of Grand Ballon is technically extremely challenging. It should not be marked as blue.

       It's quite an interesting trail due to the long decent. But I have to agree the others, the first part is quite difficult but a lot of fun.

      The trail starts above the trees on the grand ballon with some wooden stairs and continues over the loose and rocky trail. There are a few sections which are quite technical, but in my opinion, if somebody doesn't want to ride those the can be easily walked..

      After descending to the cafe just below the grand ballon, the trail goes through the forest. Its a nice blue and flowy trail, only in the really last section just before the valley the difficulty increases a little.

      We had been there on 27th June and there where no trees on the trail, it was in great condition...

       Leave out the top part at Grand Ballon and just start into the trail again at Route de Geishouse, all good! Top part actually is Closed for MTB. Lovely long flowy trail, nice little DH part to the End
