Gradini e rocce difficili nelle prime due brevi parti. Poi ripida mulattiera con fondo un po' smosso. Al suo termine parte un bel single track veloce con alcuni gradini e rocce affioranti.

NOTA Il tratto finale che scende direttamente in Viggiù è attualmente (settembre 2020) in disuso: meglio scegliere una delle varianti precedenti (orsa var. sin. oppure Luraschi) oppure, prima della svolta a sinistra, andare diritti/destra a prendere lo sterrato che porta alla strada di salita al massiccio, presso il ponte sul Poaggia.

      reporter Molto carino, concordo che i drop sono disegnati un pò in qualche modo, ok metterci dei salti ma che siano con criterio!

       Bella pista ma un po' sporca nella parte più bassa: ho modificato la traccia originale nel tratto precedente l'imbocco del trail orsa variante sinistra, in quanto evidentemente non più percorso. Il tratto finale che scende in Viggiù è piuttosto trascurato con un albero caduto, rami a terra e sporco vario con punti in cui il tracciato ottimale risulta confuso da alcune varianti. La scalinata finale, già impegnativa di suo, è resa sgradevole dai rovi invadenti.
