Trail Back Track
Tree down and blocking the full width of the trail about 1.5km in from the lower parking lot after the second stream crossing. It is passable by carrying and shoving your bike awkwardly through the branches but is a bit of a challenge – expect to get yourself scratched and dirty. Took us two people per bike to get them through. Other than that, great climb to the top and awesome on an e-bike.

Rode when it was still a 3 and the middle section did surprise me. Deserved the upgrade to Grade 4.

Trail Back Track
Wide gravel trail with four (or is it five) shallow water crossings, walkers and doggos. Mostly shady. Try and avoid the native snails. Many pest traps, have encountered dead possums so watch your pup.

Excellent down hill track. Flowing and smooth. Not too many jumps.
