Trail is in mint condition. The trail builders have added a lot of sand to eliminate the puddles and bogs. It has reduced the technicality of the trail but after all the rain we've had recently - you can't tell cos the trail is really dry due to the sand.

A great trail with lots of technical rooty sections to challenge your skills, hats off to the zen masters that can ride it without putting a foot down or getting off to push over an obstacle.

Awesome trail through natives. Three parts, two that flow and mid section more cross country with some nice challenging rooty climbs

This is a G4 trail by any definition and should be labelled as such. It’s a bit rich that Whaki ‘G3’ and this trail have the same grading. What’s the point if trails aren’t graded properly?

Great ride, it's a 3-4 grade but very manageable if you take care. There is a rooted section but not to hard

Think this is closed for logging. Was there last week and the sign said that the trees were coming down starting January 16. Bummer.
