(Advanced trail, a little harder than Windmill or Transient)
Tight swoopy track that increases difficulty with speed. Lots of weaving. Gets very messy when wet.

 As said by Gristle, This trail is a bit above Intermediate but not expert (Advance) needs to be distinguished

 Yep, if only to match the WCC grading.

 I'd call it a blue at best. Speed is not a factor when rating a track.

 I've changed the rating to intermediate. I'm pretty sure it used to be advanced with the WCC, but they have it as intermediate now. It is less sketchy than it was pre-windmill.
