Very wet and muddy, deep ruts, slippery to walk would not recommend traversing downhill from slip rd.

May be a green but physically not a green.
If a “green rider” went looking for this track as a green they would be caught out.
Not worth it.

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.

Middle of trail is blocked with logging slash, about 20m which can be walked past. Otherwise riding nice
