The second half, after Split Enz has enjoyed a lot of maintenance recently to manage all the rain we've had. It's in great condition. Thank you team, really appreciated.

Old trail which isn’t very popular anymore, for good reason. Rooty without much gradient, so just awkward to ride.

Tried to ride this from the top of Pig Track, but it looks like it's been destroyed as part of recent logging work. The same with Soakhole. A shame, they were great tracks.

The climb section should be marked as closed. It has been disrupted by quarrying and is unrideable for large sections.

Rode this track with wife on our way back to the car park. Maybe it was because we had knocked out nearly 40kms on other tracks but I wouldn't call this track fast and flowey through its length as over the years the base soil has worn down exposing a very root exposed track. It is in good order but in places quite knarly which could catch a rider out. Still challenging and enjoyable as a G3 track

The trails has really good flow, especially the smooth berms in the top section. Some of the corners in the lower section are pretty tight, but also large and well bermed. I just wish this trail was longer, it's over too quickly.

Awesome trail, great scenery, nice and smooth not too many roots, however wouldn't really agree with the "downhill primary" label. The first 1/2 to 2/3 is uphill, and there's a relatively short downhill after that. The return trail "Yellow Brick Road Return" is much more fun, mostly downhill and flowy. We took our 2 year old on it and he was just giggling with excitement the whole way down. Definitely a great fun trail for anyone who's new to mountain biking.

the tricky rooty section has a bypass now if you don't want to tackle it, and the rocky section is much easier.
