Description

You start this great route by working your way up an old jeep road. But the road has been so long neglected that trees have grown in on either side, and they are quite tight. As you work your way up, the trees get less dense and the trail get quite windy. A lot of it is smooth and great fun with a few rocky sections here and there to keep it interesting.
