Trail Scooby Doo
Good intermediate trail compared to the more technical stuff in the area but perhaps not worth the climb for this trail alone. Some current access issues due to tree felling works which i have noted in the trail report section. Fallen trees on the trail itself now have diversions and is fully rideable.

It’s a great ebike workout, getting all the way to the top without dabbing is a win. Wee bit overgrown.

Top section real good fun. Bottom section after fire road is totally overgrown with ferns at the moment. Would be a fun, slightly harder continuation of the upper, but really hard to ride right when the ferns prevent you from seeing and anticipating.

Fun trail but think difficulty is definitely closer to Red than Black in character. Trail is a mellow gradient, a few roots, only black features would be the optional rock drop, and perhaps one steeper rootier chute near the end of the trail.

Superb trail. Nice drop into the second part from the fire road. Steep and twisting

Techy but fun, not too gnarly if ridden cautiously

Fun trail, not steep at all. A bit flat with a small pinch climb in the first half but speeds build on the lower section. One jump that is not rollable, but easily avoided, otherwise probably a red not black. Finishes near town. Access trail is a little overgrown and needs a short hike-a-bike for the final section but not really a bother.

Thanks for setting up the route. Did part of this yesterday including Scooby Doo. Was very wet and boggy especially on the high ground so slowed things down quite a bit.

Access to Scooby Doo via the connecting path seems to be lost to the tree felling works. The trail can still be reached if you are happy to carry your bike over the felled area but probably a no-go if the site machinery is active. The trail itself is running ok, some small muddy sections on the day I rode. Ignore previous comments re: fallen trees, the trail has short diversions around all of them and can be ridden without stopping.

Heavy mud on the connection to Scooby Doo access path. Access to Scooby Doo itself from there seems to be lost to the tree felling works. The trail can still be reached if you are happy to carry your bike over the felled area but probably a no-go if the site machinery is active.
