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.

 Blue features until the the last 50 m, then red or black steep features at the end. The manditory jump at the end has been leveled, and is now rollable
