       Rode this for the first time in the D’Ville XC Race. Was fun even after I’d climbed up for an hour at race pace! The descending part of this trail has some nice rocky features.

       Smooth and very scenic on the uphill/flat part, then a more rocky but fast and fun descent. The climbing part is almost all under tree cover, very pretty, and should not dissuade anyone from using this trail to make a bigger loop in D-ville.
