Steady climb mostly up the fire roads. Followed by fun flowing downhill with a short climb and pedally section in the middle. Not the easiest place to find and get to but worth a visit. One lap is over within an hour at the very most, so its a good place to go for a few laps and getting to know the run rather than an all day adventure.

      Tree down on the section prior to the last fireroad crossing before final descent. It is possible to duck underneath it but be wary.

      A little overgrown in places, some braking bumps. Lots of puddles due to heavy rain.

      Trail was fast and dry, some small braking bumps don't spoil the f ride. Well worth a few laps.

      Very wet today but still rolling well with minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps)
