It is the main pathway through Illogan Woods. At the top and bottom there is a short section of tarmac pathway, otherwise it is a woodland path with some stony/rocky sections and a fair bit of mud at times. About half way down there is a stream to cross (actually a small bridge or the overflow channel) and the bottom section almost never dries out. Very near the end there is a very narrow section to get through, it is a concrete structure just wide enough for your handle bars - take it steady! There are no notable trail features such as jumps etc (although it might be possible to jump the fore mentioned overflow channel). Basically it is a downhill woodland trail which you can attack as fast as you wish. You can also go up it, both directions are sections on Strava.
Enter the bottom from Portreath, near the School. The top is near Illogan School and there is parking at both ends if you want it.
