Winter 2020 run-off has degraded the narrow portions of this trail. The trough is deep and barely passable if you are riding solo. You footpegs will hang up. in either direction of travel.

Not worth the effort for MTB. Beyond wet and hard to imagine how trail-width 30cm deep puddles would ever dry out. Motorsports only. After riding so many great trail networks on the east side of the island, this was a disappointment.
