“A tight, twisting, steep and technical downhill with many berms.”

. Approximately 2mins down the trail, watch for a small jump (use caution and go slow) that throws you up and into the start of the steep section of the trail. This is the crux of the trail and the section that gives the trail its name. There is an optional ride-around for this technical trail feature (TTF). The steep section is very steep and gnarly with jagged rock and loose dirt so use caution!
When the trail begins to open up a little bit be aware of a small 1 foot dirt step-up that puts you up and over a large tree root and into a hard right berm launching you into a fast straight-away. The trail gets snakelike once more and loams through a very vibrant-green, soft mossy area. The trail opens up once more as you launch down a steep ridge section and you prepare for a blind quick right berm and a 2 foot drop. It is possible to roll this drop but keep way back over your rear tire.
Trail speed increases through the wide open section and when nearing the bottom, prepare for a monster double right berm. Shortly thereafter, you'll find yourself at the creek bed and ready for the 2.5km ride south (left) to Ings Mine parking lot!
