In the top three trails for me at AE, short but you can get fast as!

Take Care.
Weekend storm has washed out parts of the trail.

Bad rut lower half where stream has cut through, be careful as it'll easily swallow your wheels. I don't mind helping out to get this fixed up if anyone maintains it, get in touch. ????

Top part of trail now reopen after felling last year. There are a few log drops off brash mats but 90% old line. Small section of forest road links this to bottom section.

A but tricky to find but just look for a slope sticking out of the hill and some small trees at the treeline. Walk past these and you'll no miss the trail

Not really worth the effort as there are a number of trees down. Could certainly be salvaged though.
