Entertaining and and varied trail along the ridge, with some flat sections, some slightly technical rooty terrain and 3 short, but really steep sections. Advanced technique required. Thick vegetation in the summer months, including some holly ("Stechpalme"), hence the name Stechpalmentrail.

There is also a not rollable Drop in the middle of the trail.

Don't ride when wet

Attention on the exit drop towards the forest road, you might be a nasty surprise to cars or bikers on the road

      Some serious erosion from the wet winter use, but runs great now.

       Great trail, but certainly harder than blue difficulty, due to several steep drops and one quite exposed (but easy) section. Not for beginners!
