An old style track with lots of corners - aiming to maximise the available area to get as much trail time as possible.
The top section of trail runs through dense canopy of Larches. It is welcoming and cool in summer, can be a test for eyesight in dim light during winter. After the rock drop the trail runs through pine forest.

Two iconic rock drops give the trail it's name. Those and a couple of rugged roll-overs on piles of logs provide the more technical sections of the trail. The rest of the trail holds nothing particularly gnarly apart from a couple of rutted, rooty corners in the pines towards the end.

There is a fork in the trail towards the end. Take either option, they join up again a short distance later.
