Named for the mythical dog that hunted the wild board Twrch, Cafall uses the opposite side of the valley to good effect, with a bit more climbing and descending. Once again, it's almost entirely on singletrack, opening with a techy and tiring climb that winds up the hillside, complete with switchbacks, rocky technical sections and plenty more to keep you on your toes.

The big first climb is rewarded with a fast, flowy descent in the trees, with plenty of high-speed rollers and jumps along with big, bermed corners. With that done, it's time to wind up to the very peak of the valley via a switchbacked climb, with the reward of a fast, rough and swooping descent all the way down to the bottom of the hill. 

It's at this point you also have the option of going back down the hill using the Pedalhounds Downhill track, but the main Cafall descent makes much better use of the height, so we'd recommend you stick to it.
