Trail is blocked by loads of fallen trees, take a big saw if you're brave enough to go.

Log bridges Chicken wire is torn up & they are very greasy, go cautiously. Also tree down over trail before the Yair man junction. Rest of the trail is spot on.

A bit too janky for my liking, much prefer the "Yair Man" descent to this full run

Probably the best part of the black trail. Huge amounts of effort for a tiny bit of decent downhill.

Pretty tight, and fairly technical in the wet.

Overgrown trees cut back and sight lines improved. Running well now. Fun little trail for novice-enduroists.
