The route starts from the Glen Finglas Visitor Center forming part of the Glen Finglas Loop. The climbing starts immediately with a 0.25 mile section that ascends 300 feet! The trail surface is crushed gravel, so it can be difficult to maintain momentum without your back tire peeling out. It will be over soon enough though, and there is a great view of Loch Venachar to the south just after the climb is finished.
The singletrack then weaves its way along the ridge before heading down towards Glen Finglas Reservoir Road. There are a couple of blind corners in the steeply descending sections, and this trail is popular with hillwalkers, so keep it in control. Also, there are some open topped box culverts that may cause an endo if you let them catch your front tire on the way down if you're not keeping it in control.
