"really good"

Section 13 is a berm and drop filled descent with rock features as well as table top jumps and small sets of doubles. It's not really a trail. The clue is in the name. It's a short fun filled descent aimed at a wide range of riders from cross country riders looking for a thrill through to freeriders and downhillers who fancy a quick 3 minute play session. Expect a narrow fast flowing descent, some big berms and the chance to catch plenty of air.

Because section 13 is cross country red grade, all the features can be rolled meaning even a cross country hardtail with 100ml travel can safely enjoy every feature, and because the section has been so cleverly built, even adrenaline junkies with big travel bikes will find it more than entertaining.

Section 13 is an excellent addition to Hamsterley's already fantastic array of trails and tracks.
