The 'Kalwes' named after the Hill it's bulit on is a short Downhill Track. The trails is rough especially in some berms. It also has gap jumps. The Track has two different starts: The old one which is more flowy and the new one. The new one's kinda lame in my oppinion because there are only f*cked up corners.
The middle part and often the spot to session some jumps is devided into two lines. One called 3er-line which has 3 'big' but easy jumps and one line wich goes around the 3er-line. This one has a 20 feet step down (4-5 foot high and 20 foot long and a big double. This one is about 30 foot long. Be careful because you have to be really fast to clear it and to not taco your wheels. But because of the high speed it's easy to overshoot the jumps and crash into trees on the side of the track. The downer section consists of rough and f*cked up berms. Really fast and good fun even though they are in a real bad condition.

There's a hidden big drop right by the Track. It's 22 foot and 16 foot long. Easy to Overshoot, Unsafe: A Double Black Diamond feature!!
