Mostly singletrack with forest "road" links. Eminently suitable for riding fully rigid - doesn't get as techinical as the rooty descent after Yoghurt Pots on the Leith Hill ride.

The are two big drop-offs (which you cannot roll over) on the "black" section, I don't do that section, but it's short section that's been added as an extra so those who wish to, can with no navigation issues.

Trail conditions this morning were fine (drier than last weekend), the "off piste" bits, a little moister but nothing remotely boggy.

Didn't get to check cake forecast. :-(
