CLOSED. There are a lot of trees down along the whole trail making riding pointless. There are also a couple of dangerous hanging trees to be sorted. Please stay away until it has been professionally cleared. Thank you.

Several large trees making this a total mission just now. The worst of it is in the bottom third of the trail.

Bit wet at the mo but there is a ton of grip to be had. Nice corners and a few nice drops and jumps. Very good.

Trail Oh deer!
Fun, mostly grassy trail. A few section where the trail falls away off camber and the turn doesn't work.
