Thanks Willy, watch this space. We're hoping to get some work done on it in the next few months to bring it back up to black rating.

It's a big climb up the fire road to get to the start but the descent is around 10 mins, so it's worth it. The top part of the trail before the Casuarina Grove Circuit link up is very rocky so if you like rock gardens this is a great trail for you. It can make descending a bit slow going though.

Don’t worry it has two jumps so most likely someone will complain and the trail will be shut down!!!

I only recently downloaded this and realised really how big this mountain is, so personally I have only ridden the lower section with the doubles. That section however is really fun and I am looking forward to riding the rest in the next few days

It would be good if Lower Pete’s was turned into a one way , down only track. Coming across someone when you’re flying down that section is really dangerous.

Nice trail fun getting lots of speed but to many people walking backwards on the trail in the area that’s slim and you have lots of speed.

The recent rain has dampened the dust and Pete's is in great condition.
The rain has also helped bed in the new Loop 1 and Loop 3. They could do with a touch up on the shoulders and drainage areas but otherwise in good condition.
