      Qualche passaggio molto tecnico e diversi alberi rendono la discesa poco continua, sconsigliato

      in the very end a land slide destroyed the old path but it´s possible to climb / hike down on a rope or over the rocks.

       Upper part is in a hiking path, in places quite difficult to ride down. Lower half is a nice and maintained bike trail.

       Upper part is a hiking trail with some quiet technical parts, yet fun to ride.
      Lower part is more flowy with berms added to some corners. Pretty steep at times.

       I had fun on the trail but had to walk quite often due to high difficulty of the trail and exposure. I would personally rate the trail definitely black.

       The upper section was enjoyable but very technical. The lower section had several downed trees, multiple sections of loose terrain and washed out areas with ruts. Generally, it was a fun adventure ride!

       in good condtion. But in the very last part before the end there was a landslide and you have to climb down 4-5 meters on a rope or step over the big boulders.
