Trail cuyo centro es el mirador que hay en el palomar cerca del campo de tiro. La subida hasta allí tiene un par de tramos muy duros y estrechos, con raices en el suelo y dada la gran pendiente es facil levantar la rueda delantera y perder la línea. La bajada es general es algo dificil, aunque la mayoría de saltos se pueden evitar, alguna pendiente se le puede atragantar a alguno. En la parte más baja del trail hay unos peraltes que dan fuerte soporte al giro, si bien hay que tomarlos con prudencia la primera vez al menos, ya que el terreno está especialmente suelto en esa zona, se acumula mucha arena, y además tienen bastantes rizos de las frenadas. Durante toda la bajada hay muchos saltos dobles con buena recepción pero la rampa es corta y alta, lo que te puede levantar la rueda trasera con facilidad.

       En los últimos días han creado nuevos peraltes y agrandado considerablemente los que ya existían.
