This trail links up three separate sections from Batzberg to Niggital. First time riders can easily get lost. The first section starts on top of Batzberg where two line choices lead to a little bridge. One technical and steep (Steep Line), the other easy but longer (Holy Trail). Right after the bridge, across the path is "Steiler Köbi". The second section (No Name) starts in some high grass under a powerline and is mostly flat. It is almost always muddy or wet but has some flow to it. It ends after a short uphill at a woodstock The third section (Hot Dog) starts after the field with a house. It has flow and is faster but also rather flat.

       Absolut cooler Downhill.
      Um alle Streckenabschnitte zu finden ist ein sehr genaues Fahren nach GPS notwendig.

       Ziemlich am Anfang hat es einen Teil der definitiv nicht leicht zu meistern ist, meiner Meinung nach blau oder sogar schwarz würdig.. (ausser wir sind falsch gefahren)

      Ansonsten genialer Trail..
