"Purgatory", this trail is so good it may make you feel like you are in an intermediate state after physical death. Expect narrow, off camber challenging climbs.

 Trail is in rough condition after the last couple of wind storms. There are large trees down every few meters. If it was clear it could be a lot of fun!

 Old school build well and worth the ride when dry.

 Awesome trail. Hard to believe this is in the middle of the city. Big thanks and kudos to those involved.
