Though it's popular to coast down the bridleway and pick this trail up halfway; this trail shares the start of 'Secret Squirrel' and misses the first uphill slog of the trail, whilst retains the early more tricky XC part.

Access Info

Roll slightly downhill from the exit of Yoghurt Pots (https://www.trailforks.com/trails/yogurt-pots/) then bare left on the bridleway, then take the trail on the right just after the crest of the hill.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      No puddles despite the rain (apart for last 10 metres by the YHA). Plenty of grip to be found.

       Trail of two halves. Top section slow and rooty.... lower section a flat out, dead straight speed fest!
