This trail has several very technical attributes. Everything is doable for the expert rider, but even an advanced rider will find many of the features too difficult.
There is a relatively steep climb with some technical challenges right at the beginning of the ride (after leaving the fire acres road).
This is a fun and challenging trail, but defineily not a beginner trail.

Access Info
