Start off with a couple quick sections of small, rocky descents. Coming to a quick 90 right, you'll then be faced with a larger steep descent into a less steep rocky section. This curves into another moderate rock race. Once at the bottom, there's a couple of quick climbs and tight turns to keep you on your toes, into a rooty run-out back onto OGXC

       Nice short trail.
      Beware : it's steep, technical and leaning toward Double Black difficulty.
