 Love the variation in terrain, from pastoral to forest to alpine. Then the downhill is just a blast. The track has suffered from recent winter storms, with some bike carries over and round fallen trees.

 Great ride, challenging downhill tree root sections and ruts. Watch out for the narrow single track on the traverse up top. One mistake and you're over the ledge!
