With very prickly lycium ferocissimum (commonly known as box-thorn) on either side and often hangging over the trail, weaving in and out at high speeds is quite difficult without getting scratched. Work will be done, with more turns added to keep it interesting. Still, a very fun trail to smash out.

Access Info

The start is to the left side of the bike-path, facing the 100 steps. Not to be confused with the maintenance track on the other side
