      It's Enduro allright, but the upper part is very rough and needs some care. The lower part is quite dreamish.

      Rode it today, good fun! The litlle jumps and small dropoffs make it a nice playground in the Violina region.
      Just a little confusing where it continues for the last third into the village Portiglioni, as there are no signs and a hiking trail is crossing. I mistakenly took this hiking trail but quickly turned around as it was a boring straight line.

      Fun trail, not too difficult, ideal as the last trail to close a day of riding and head back in to Follonica.

      Very flowy and fast trail, rocky sections, also woodland parts. Some smaller jumps. Totally worth pushing up the fire road to the the top (scenic view!)
