A trail of two halves. The first part is tight, rooty and nearly always difficult to find flow. In the winter months (Scottish winter is every month except May-August usually) it can also be dark in the trees. so much so that lights will give you a distinct advantage, even in the brightest of days. The first part of this trail also seems to stay significantly wetter than the second part.
Once you cross the fire break into the second half, things improve significantly. You can see without lights, it dries up and you can blast down the trail at a fairly decent rate of knots. A few quirky sections see you trying to thread yourself though the trees without losing momentum. At the same time the rapid undulations pump your arms to the point that holding on, and braking, become significantly more difficult.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Muddy and rutty at the very start but the rest of the trail is dry and running well.

      Trail is heavily rutted and is knee deep mud as a result of the tweedlove king and queen race in August. I would say the trail is so heavily...
