Mainly natural down hill track with natural rock gardens,roots and ruts
Main features are a steep bomb hole with a sender mini gap jump after it(which both can be bypassed).
after the gap jump the track splits in two for a short section then joins back up on some big rooty section.
the run lasts around 1 minute.can be ridden on either an all mountain or a dh bike.This trail is best ridden when either doing an all mountain loop or running some other DH tracks further up.
