Trail Atlas
Many boggy sections at the moment but probably one of the better trails in the network as of now and is riding well

First half includes some rocky slabs, technical uphill corners with rocks and roots for an uphill puff, but those smooth sweeping berms and fast descent are just amazing, and well worth the effort! It blends with Atlas & Dambusters for that roller coaster of berms to finish. KM

Also: the track work they did in late 2021 has made it drain beautifully for wetter weather.

Trail Atlas
Stunning trail with lovely smooth, sweeping berms near the top and second half. The gentle climb switchback section in 2nd quarter of ride winds through beautiful mossy forest, and is absolutely worth every moment of descent. There are a few features and drops, but generally nice, smooth riding. Return to sender is similar is style and terrain. Also cool log ride feature at roughly 3/4 is a fun challenge, with B line options.

Where do you go at the end of the ride assuming you are descending does it join with the Derby tracks?

Yes it joins either Dambusters or Kruskas depending on which exit you take

Did the Blue Tier/Atlas run today and Atlas was the highlight for me. A bit of a climb at the start to warm up and then cracker of a descent over granite rocks, roots and creeks. Awesome track.

One bridge is out with a vertical drop, will need to walk the short gap. Very muddy in parts but most of the trail still riding okay.

Lots of trees (big and small) down. Plenty of derailleur snapping twigs too. Was very windy today, so more may have fallen after we passed through. Middle and lower sections were mostly rideable.
