 The Hill Road to Old Coach Road section is closed due to lambing. It should be open again from 23rd October.

The track has been upgraded with a new farm fence being added on the east side of the track, all the way to the top, where there are no a new set of gates. the track was alot smoother and faster over the summer 2016/17, with faster strava times, We will see what the drainage is like over winter.
