       I enjoyed this trail. If you're into loose, chunky, awkwardly embedded rocks you will dig. It's like a game of avoiding pedal strikes. Top half is like a bobsled track of rocks, bottom half is a bit more loose rocks, some tricky turns and a bit more flat and pedally. Posted a video under the video tab to give ya an idea of the trail. Rode this trail beginning of November conditions were perfect.
