Loose, natural and steep. A few small drops, 2-3 feet, all of them have roll downs on though. Extremely loose in the wet. 5 minutes to get down at a fast pace. Lots of features/interesting bits of trail to session if you like that sort of thing,or just blast the whole thing Not for those who love their back brake a bit too much, it won't help you here! The whole trail can be done in about 4 pedal strokes.
