A short, steep, rutted, climb sets the tone for this XC single track connection from McAloon to the Holy Trail. There are several more short but challenging climbs, some with downhill preludes that let you coast most of the way up if you get the flow right. There is plenty of challenge in this trail to mark your fitness / skill progression over the season.

       Heard through the grapevine there was a significant injury on the drop over the weekend. Going to make some time to go assess weather or not the drop is salvageable or should be removed entirely.
