Excellent downhill, flowy turns, just a tiny splash of tech but fast. Nothing too difficult, but a few turns can be a bit rocky with embedded rocks. This is a fun challenge to ride up as well, so when going down expect uphill traffic. This section is usually downhill for most of the local loops though.
