This is a fast forest track with perfect natural flow and shallow angle of descent. The 15-20-minute descent is great for intermediate/advanced trail riders. There are lots of options, so don't worry too much about going the wrong way. Follow the fast trails down the drainage, almost every option is fantastic. Lots of woodcutters, firewood collectors, and livestock in the area.

The trail is best suited for a trail or enduro bike.

Like all trails in Menagesha, there are too many intersections to keep track of. Follow the drainage down. Think like a cow heading down to market and you'll probably stay on the right track. There are a few tricky turns though so use the GPS and do not go straight down to the creeks; stay up in the drainage.

You could also climb up to this same point from any of the trails that finish where 11 or 777 finish on the road.

Access Info

Access from Trail 11 which you follow down to where 11 splits into three directions. The right-hand choice is Holy Roller.
