Great Technical trail riding. never an easy spin around the eight, always feel like I have been working. Great tight descents through the trees on the lower loop, swoopy is wicked fun and the black options are excellent. The new climb is brilliant and the black option is hard to clean (for me). The hope line is a blast but the climb back up is a killer after a few goes - any chance of a ski lift..! Hully Gully is excellent but starting to get cut up where people take lower lines. Friend did it all on a rigid MTB but looked beat up at the end so I reccomend suspension. Definitely want some form of waterproofing to shoes (sealskins, etc) after rain as it gets puddletastic!
