TRACK WALK The trail starts off at the entrance to the barracks of Fort Campbell heading down the side in the direction towards Mistra Bay.  At the bottom of the descent the track heads left for a cliff-side ride over a rock downhill section all the way down towards the sea.  This section will challenge the riders skills over technical terrain at high speeds.  The next section takes the riders through trekking trails around the bottom of Selmun, often used by 4x4 enthusiasts.  The track finishes off with a climb towards the start/finish line over the clay hills with loose rock spread all over.  Rider stamina will definitely be tested here.  The number of laps will depend on the rider category.
