 Not a great trail - gravel surface wears well but doesn't make for good riding. Not sure it deserves an advanced rating either, pretty easy to ride.

 Fast easy trail though it was mark advance in the entrance. Good ride after riding the tough upper challenger track or ARA drive grave uphill.

Careful on the sides as there are no barriers.
