Trail starts out fast in the clearcut then enters the forest where soon after there is a steep short uphill. The the bulk of the trail is side hilling along the edge of the mountain with a creek below. Nice technical sections with rocks and roots, but you can keep a good flow. The bottom section of the trail gets fast and more downhill again, with spots that are a bit overgrown in the summer.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

reporter Top half is good. Bottom has some overhanging branches and loose rocky surface that make it hard to ride as intended.
