The second half, after Split Enz has enjoyed a lot of maintenance recently to manage all the rain we've had. It's in great condition. Thank you team, really appreciated.

Rode this today while on our way to Shark v Eagle.
Posted as Grade 2 but I would not recommended to anybody who cannot manage grade 3. It is a knarly climb and challenging in places and probably should be a G3 when you looking at Grade 3 description. The track was otherwise in good order

Trail As You Do
Very technical climb, I would not class that as a Grade 3. It is more like a Grade 4 climb

Trail Pondy New
the tricky rooty section has a bypass now if you don't want to tackle it, and the rocky section is much easier.

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