Take a minute to admire the view all the way down to Kochani and the rice plains below before you drop in to this fast single track decent.
The trail is predominantly fast and open, with flyaway jumps and the occasional sneaky step down.
Several slower technical sections break up the decent and keep riders on their toes.
Drop in on the right of the road to Leshki, about 200m past the turn off from the main road up to the ski field, and get ready to hit high speed right away.
Blast through several open corners and out into the field (50km/h+ is possible here) before slowing a little as the low scrub approaches again.
Speeds stay high through this section, but beware of the loose, sandy, off camber 180* corners that can otherwise catch you out.
From here, riders dive into a mix of tight woods and short, fast open sections.
The trail then runs uphill briefly, before a section of pine woods with a steep slope on rider's left bring the speeds back up.
The remainder of the track runs through the woods above the lake, before dropping riders out onto the asphalt road that runs down into Kochani.
Shuttles can be arranged at the hotel at the lake for a small fee, and the small restaurant has local food and beer, when it's open.
