Fun singletrack sections with some advanced descents (very steep!) A lot of tight switchbacks - some skill required for these.

Initial climb followed by a great little descent. Heads up as there are a couple of steep and tight sections towards the end

 Quite a fast yet fun descent. There‚Äôs a few off camber corners and a relatively narrow trail so watch the speed.
This trail and area could be truly a super fun descending flow track with a bit of love. The track leading into it as well needs a few corners nipped to improve flow and a little bit of track widening and it will make of one fun track.
The clay down the bottom bogs the tyres in the wet.
Overall , I rate it highly
