Fun and narrow (beware with the trees and your handlebar) trail with some small technical sections. Very loose terrain when dry.

      Had to remove a tree at the beginning. The steep sections are very loose when dry

       The first 180° turn is really easy to miss.
      The upper part has two really steep sections. The first one continues into a steep berm and when it's dry you will have a hard time getting enough grip to controll your speed on the loose ground. (I crashed pretty hard after the berm)
      Still a good trail though if you are up for a challenge Big Grin
