This trail has some fast sections at the top, but it is narrow and the turns seem to get tighter and tighter. What I love about this trail is the deep jungle feel when the turns drop you deep into little hollows, and drop you down hollows fast. The trail has a tendency to get a bit overgrown, and little stumps can be hiding in the underbrush waiting to strike your pedal.

There is one little cool rock rollover feature where the trail opens up to the sunlight then drops you back into the jungle. This trail would be a good climb as well

      The trail is overgrown. Climbing is an extra challenge and descending will be slow.
