Seems like this has been returned to nature. Fast and fun, some brambles over the trail, but nothing too dense

Great section, little climb to start then flat out fun with a few kickers to grab some air.

The trail starts like a usual single track but shortly afterwards the forestry authorities have cut all trees down and the single track becomes a muddy boring forest road removing almost all interest in riding this trail unfortunately.

October 2018.
Do not attempt to ride this section, the forest is being felled mid way in to the section and the way through is blocked by 15-20 felled trees.

No longer rideable as of December 2017. Logging has destroyed the trail. May get re-instated.

Cracking trail, very nicely running, with plenty of grip, however once past the second fire road into the last section it gets very wet and puddley.
