Steep, with big nobbly roots and plenty of mud. Be careful to make the ;eft hand turn back into the trail and not sneak down the walkers path like mosy of the quick people on Strava...Unofficial and technical trail with a lot of ways to crash into trees, tree stumps and other nasties.

       Tricky short trail, nothing too gnarly but quite hard to ride smoothly. Grip ranges from slippery to non-existent depending on weather. A good introduction to the other off-piste trails at Glentress.
