Left to overgrow as not a "sanctioned" trail. Bridges dangerous and on verge of collapse. Erosion at the tree, pinch climb, left hand hairpin practically unpassable

Again smashed by the recent relentless rain. Some remediation work at the start of the trail looking good. Otherwise keep your wits about you due to the rain gouges

Trail maintenance has removed all rocks at the start and end. Very disappointing

Trail maintenance was carried out by QPWS, hopefully will be rectified, rocks and features returned, in the near future.

Trail Explosions
If long standing naming counts for anything, most of what has been named Explosions this week is actually Never Ending Story. Explosions is the part that runs down past the quarry (hence the name). Never Ending story is just that,. It's one of the longer trails and leads right into Explosions. What are your thoughts? Make a comment.

Trail Explosions
It makes better sense and clarity for riders to start Explosions from the intersection with Pandora, NES and the link to NG29. Also think the link should be just that, a link, not part of Pandora.
