This is not a steep track but the narrow chutes combined with tree roots make it technical, especially in the wet.
It is a good one to finish a ride and see if you can whip it faster than the last time - in a very pretty part of the forest with Redwoods.

There are a couple of short pinch climbs with steps that are good for tuning your skills.

Finishes with a stream crossing that caused havoc at the 2010 Singlespeed Worlds - of the nearly 1000 riders rather a lot went ass over elbow!
