Following some hefty revisions by the local Ranger this trail retains it's sloppy wet start, but opens up into a fun, fast and flowing descent off the hill; the gaps are gone, as are the drops but still keeps enough interest to make this worth pointing the bike down. Extremely smooth right until the end where it is a bit steeper and rough, but avoidable.
