Still a bit wet from the weekend but grippy in the corners. The middle line in the end steep bit has changed since I last tried this line about 10 days ago and caught me by surprise. There seems to be a new and very loamy line from half way down the middle one to join with the middle of the right hand branch

One of the best trails in the surrey hills. Definitely suited towards xc bikes

End of the trail has become so destroyed that I would recommend taking the most right option at the fork to avoid it until it gets fixed. Crashed there last year and it has only gotten worse since...

Note: The right fork is marked as root of all evil on OSM if you want to map that instead.

Very easy to start, but becomes a little harder towards the end. Overall a brilliant trail, but could do with smoothing out the bottom section by filling in the braking holes. It was a great test for my new suspension fork however.

This is Blue until the last 1/4, then its Red or Black. The end isn’t suitable for riders who normally ride Blues.

Three choices for the last 2 cliff rolls (very steep), middle is the hardest.

Mint jump sections, some extras just before this section starts, parallel to the road. Don't have to do the jumps (though they're all rollable anyway) and a nice tree option (as featured on GMBN with Neil ????)

I first rode this trail in the eighties when there was no suspension and we had to cut the undergrowth back at times to keep it open. It’s changed a bit since then. At that time it was also known as “Reservoir Dogs” presumably because it starts at the reservoir. It was also known as “Golden Birdies” but I’ve absolutely no idea why. Maybe there were a lot of pheasant hanging around and getting run over? If anyone is even older than me perhaps they can let us all know.

Blue features until the the last 50 m, then red or black steep features at the end. The manditory jump at the end has been leveled, and is now rollable

Please take care!!
