Despite not being shown on the image, the D294 running east to west does exist here. It's a nice (if a bit bumpy in places) run uphill through a forest. As you come down the hill, watch out for the off camber right hander, the road then improves after the cattle grid and has some nice banked sections followed by a small downhill mountain piece. Watch out for the second cattle grid after the banked section as it comes into view verty suddenly. A fun route, but take care.
