Only rated Grade 5 on account of the gaps. But they are easy gaps, just over a bike length, and the rest of the trail is not demanding.

A nice track. In my view it is not a grade two track. It should be a grade three.

A non technical mandatory uphill grunt to get to the other tracks. Forest has been cleared so in the open.

Big ruts, shoe-swallowing mud in places and in other places very overgrown with thistles. Obviously not well used or maintained much.
