XC trail with lots of ups, downs, twists and turns. Nothing too technical but lots of roots and some short bits of wood work. There's a nice stop at a bench to sit and have a view before finishing up by the shelter.

 Did not like this trail after coming off half Nelson. Rooted and not a good flow. Just different after being spoiled by the machine groomed trails.
