Rugged, rocky descent with lots of fast-paced terrain changes. A couple of stream crossings and some rock gardens. One baby-skull-rock descent is probably the most challenging bit.

Great fun, but you probably want to put a few more pounds of pressure in your tires to survive the plethora of sharp, jagged rocks.
