Coming off of Brough Lane and starting at Rebellion Knoll the track heads SW through hawthorn trees, before turning right towards Bradwell for the last section. It ends with a road descent into Bradwell.
The track comes off part way down Brough Lane, crosses a small field and turns right on Bradwell Edge and Rebellion Knoll. It then turns back left, round a large curved bank and starts to head down hill, becoming more defined singletrack in a slight gulley with a few roots and rocks. A line weaves round the outside of a gate and style and drops into a gulley lined with hawthorn trees. This later widens out briefly with a line either side of a collapsed wall. The singletrack flattens out before large embedded rocks and two upright stone posts warn of the drop and right hand turn as the track changes direction. From here there is a 40m section with two separated lines. The left line is narrower and weaves more tightly with roots and small drops and the right line is wider, but ends in a steep earth bank onto a right turn. After they join the track is wide and slightly rutted with a steep slope, which gets very slippery in the wet, to a gate and the end of the track.
