 There are 3-4 bits of this fast track that bumps your suspension. The first section starts from the top of signal hill and quickly becomes very steep loose rocky and needs commitment until it is crossed by an access road. The second bit is very easy, just hold on and feel the suspension work on very fast but gentle bumps until a plateau that you may join back on the big easy. The third section is hard - steep, at least 2 decent rock drops - then terminates to either a road to the big easy or you can join Magnatron.
