      Lots of leaves, quiet slippery in the wet. Otherwise well maintained.

      Great trail, but some very technical parts. Rather double black than blue.

       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.
