      I found the trail to be a good mix of cross country, rutted downhill, some climbing and when keeping speed up it flows. Worth doing in my opinion.

      The OP isn't lying. Some real potential if there is a revamp.

      If you are looking for a fast pace, feature full, action packed track..... I'd go somewhere else, this track was sadder then you're grandmother dying and more disappointing then her not leaving you the inheritance.
