Summary:
big climbs, big descents, massive berms and scary bits!

Review:
Nice trail, and challenging to ride - especially the end descent. The start is a bit of a slog, and the signs are slightly misleading (I found myself 2 miles further up the hill on the fire road at a t junction before realising I had gone wrong), but the first bit of singletrack gives a good hint of what is to come. There are a couple of downhill sections that are great fun, with tabletops and whoops to play on, and after a gruelling climb (or it was for me) you get to the top of the final descent. This is great, but be warned it is tougher than the red route marking might indicate - decent skills required to stay on the track, and serious drops to the valley bottom make that fairly essential.

Well worth a visit whether you are into downhill or xc - although downhillers will just want to push up the final descent, they are missing a really nice all weather trail.
