Description
This lollipop loop is fairly demanding. The initial drop has sections that are exposed with ledge drops on a hillside. The lower section has many tight turns and some tight spaces to fit your bars through. There are 2 climbs on the way back out, the first one has tight switchbacks and a couple of rock steps to negotiate while the second is long and gravely.

It's washboarded in spots as well from downhill riders locking up their brakes. The challenges on this section are more due to the loose grave hanging out on all the exposed rock rather than the actual size of the steps and ramps.
