Fast narrow single track into natural steep rock and root gardens (segment-Royale with cheese) for the first half then into man made drops(segment-Wet Rubber) and jumps with flow berms to finish off. Full run thru both segments called "Fatman with a stutter" (on strava) or original name "Hokonui Bikers Fence to Fence". One section is a challenge during the winter this will be made more wet weather friendly in the future.
