Edwards and Downhill to Pipe may be in need of repair, check recent reports.

starting at "downhill to pipe" is the first downhill section with some fun berms and a sick gap. Continue along the pipe fire road and then down Allambie road until martin Luther place where you turn off. At the end of martin Luther place is a gate and on the right a small rock climb around the gate and onto the fire road. Approximately 50 metres down the fire road is a right turn off on the the trickiest trail in this route "Edwards". "Edwards" is a black diamond with a few big drops and tons of options going left and right. After "Edwards" crossing Allambie oval and then turning right on a fire trail which connects to the east trail of manly dam. This new flowy section is a blast to speed through and the most regularly kept trail.

      Work vans blocking the route yesterday. Workers with chain saws. I was allowed to go through but I think one rider may've been turned back. I don't know if it's officially closed
