Described for descent. A very steep grass slope, indistinct, to not visible, in the middle but follow the ridgeline, that starts with a clear doubletrack thorugh the forest to a narrow gate. Beyond the gate follow an open grass hillside which gets steeper. Can be zig zagged. At the bottom fence turn left and follow the clear path through two gates onto gravel doubletrack down to cross the stream of Minton Batch and join that trail. Can be climbed but is extreme end of climbability for a non-ebike. Graded for descent only.

       This is a blue route. Not even that steep. Still worth a ride though.
