Starts out with a fast, flowy, pump section, then moves into a faster, slightly bumpy section with a few jumps. Then it flattens out into a trail section with lots of log ladders.

Access Info

Drive along Faber road, park at the fish and duck pub sign at the top of the hill. Ride down the quad access trail and take the 2nd trail on the left.
