Fast descent with nice views over the Medway valley. Short rooty and technical section in the first half and short climb about half way through. My advice is go FSA, even through the roots, but keep your eyes open for hikers and horses, as this trail is a multi use bridleway, so be considerate and cautious. If you'd like a smoother ride, there's an option to ride alongside the main path, avoiding all the small rocks and roots (useful when doing the trail uphill)
