Trail 4 Degrees
Bench width, surface roughness, plus some sustained steep sections make it more like a grade 3. Not at all hard, but compared to the climb on the other side of the hill which is a genuine grade 2.

Trail Borderline
Superb descent from Old Coach Road. A lesson in keeping off the brakes. Great rocky chutes and pretty steep in parts but all excellent entertainment!

Trail 4 Degrees
Pleasant climb, mostly under bush cover, with the odd (very easy) rocky / techy bits to keep things mildly interesting. As the trail weathers and more rocks are exposed, it pushes the trail to the harder end of a green. Most riders will ride it with their eyes closed but kids or new riders may find some sections a bit tricky.

Vastly preferable to the horrible slog up the 4x4 track.

Trail 4 Degrees
This is a two way track which also is used by walkers, so shouldn't be used to PR while downhill, due to safety to walkers and uphill cyclist.However a great extended continuous climb from Stratton street to Old Coach road so you can thrash one of the designated downhill track to the bottom again.

A bit of moisture in the valleys and under the trees but generally drying out. Surface continues to rough up in places. Similar feel to Salvation.
