60% Fire road climb followed by a heather and moorland singletrack to the top. Descend on a singletrack with 2-3 foot deep braking bumps for 1/4 mile then hit a right sans brakes down a free fall grass chute for 1/4 mile. Left through trees onto a gravel singletrack again full of surprises and off camber bumps, hit fireroad at full blast and start climbing to your left. Climb again to the end of the fireroad climb. Turn right up a firebreak and descent the rocky... Only attempt this descent in the dry any moisture will put you and your bike in for repairs. Sharp rocks G outs and fast as you can go. Follow trail down the walkers path to get back to the shop.

Summary:
The climb is very long, i mean looonnng! The final climb to the top gets steep and the peat saps your strength.
The descent is a total blast, do it on a hardtail and just get off the back, keep the arms loose and what ever you do, stay of the front brake.
This has everything, drops, jumps, rocks, grass, off-camber grass and bermed turns. Just get out and ride it. If you think that youll skip it cos not many people have reveiwed it then heres the jen- there are not many reveiws cos not many people know where it is. Downhillers stay away cos of the climb and cos they go to the Elibank tracks. So this is quiet and always in top condition(hard).

Recommended Route:
As he says, the long climb is the only way to get there and then its pretty obvious. Down!

You dont expect us to give all the secret spots away do you! Ride and find, thats my motto.
