A truly exhilarating descent with drops and big rock gardens .Mainly ridden when incorporated in to a loop as the riding terrain to get to this is difficult physically and mentally .especially in the winter months .Watch out for the walkers especially in the Summer as it gets pretty busy.Best ridden early in the morning or later on at night unless the weather is crap (then anytime).
