Three Sisters is a fast, fun and flowy trail with a few big rock roll-overs which rides equally well from both ends. This trail is 90% green and about 8.5% blue on account of a few techie steep areas as well as rock gardens and about 1.5% black because of one very steep short rocky climb which most people walk. The section between the top end of B Bypass and the top of Uppity Climb Trail is virtually inaccessible. The best way round is to go up Uppity Connector nd Uppity. Other than that, it is one of the most fun and flowy trails at Vietnam. At the higher end of the trail at the B Bypass, the trail becomes extremely steep and somewhat overgrown. From here it is best to go down B Bypass or, a little lower down, to take the Uppity Connector to Uppity Climbing Trail, which takes you to the top end of Three Sisters and the Gig. Yes, it is a work around for a messy, very steep and overgrown part of Three Sisters. Despite this, Three Sisters is a must ride Quintessential Vietnam.
