A fun trail with a good amount of flow. Not too many features, but there are some small tight berms. There is one section about 30 meters that is steep, straight and narrow. If it's, wet, just hold on, as you will accelerate despite full braking but you can slow down at the bottom of the section. As the name implies, the top part of the trail is tricky in the dry, due to off camber turns with many smooth rocks embedded in the trail. It's very tricky when wet. Also, the bottom section gets very slick after a rain. It's probably better to do the Birmenstorf trail when wet or even go over to Baregg and do the Rüstler DH.

Hint: at the bottom, turn left and climb for about 300m and look for a small single track on the right to finish the downhill. This part is very slick and muddy when wet but great when dry.

 Isn't quite so slippery. Rode it in the rain. Needs just a bit of skill. Less braking more rolling and good tires
