This track can be ridden both up and down. Please look out for riders approaching from the opposite direction.

The uphill features some steep pinches, and tight switchbacks. The downhill will see you sliding foot-out with a big grin, around those same tight switchbacks.

Recent working bee to clean it up done in September 2014.
