The trail starts with a slight climb, it's quite easy, roots barely sticking out, mostly even, followed by a left turn and long straight descent, followed by a right turn which the trail transfers to a mix of dirt & gravel, with a short uphill section which can be rolled, or jumped.
followed by a straight with a slight turn and straight to the the other trails.
