An undulated trail with lots of tech and not much flow. If you start from the Longbush Skid SW and go down and straight through onto "The Cleaver" (Machette goes hard right up a techie hill), it runs as a nice downhill.

Tree down club house end needs big chain saw.
Can’t be ridden around-possible to tramp around.

Who's the moderator for this? And can they move the trail end to where it is supposed to be not 200 metres down the road where some one has marked it. A couple hundred metres of flat access road in not a trail. Thanks the guy that built it.

Thing2 edited to remove the road, needs a couple of votes though. I'll get the GPS data for the road when I'm out there next and add it myself.
