Short Downhil track with a long straight that then drops into tight turns and there is a small loose rock garden at the end.

Courte piste de descente avec une longue ligne droite qui descend ensuite dans des virages serrés et il y a un petit jardin de rocaille lâche à la fin.

Access Info

Follow the trail that leads up to the castle and then turn right at the top (Info: on one of the turns you have to go straight off half way through, aka. don't turn right when there is an option of going straight).

Suivez le sentier qui mène au château puis tournez à droite en haut (Info: dans l'un des virages, vous devez aller tout droit à mi-chemin, c'est-à-dire ne pas tourner à droite quand il est possible d'aller tout droit) .
