Mostly relatively flat with one area of steep gradient. Reportedly a good beginner run, but be sure to scout any horizon lines or areas that appear to be getting steep.

Just ran this on May 29th after a inch of rain. Was a lot of fun but a ton of water lead to numerous spills. All in all a great section for a beginner.
