Tracks running pretty sweet. A little rutted out in one steep section. But in reasonably good condition.

Rode this today for the first time. Well maintained and easy for someone to run a simple shuttle.

Maintenance work underway. Closures in large sections. May not be rideable though. Will try for weekend openings.

The easy DH line is clear, and most of the jump line. The freeride line is not clear at this stage. This is a grade 4 and 5 track so treat it with respect, don't bring a knife to a gun fight, some lines are rutted out. The top section is hard clay which is very slippery when wet but good when dry and it dries up quickly with some sun.

Wow that was shit, track is fully rutted out, overgrown, and the jumps are preying crap. Track was a total waste of time.

Massively overgrown and unfortunately quite neglected. Had to bush bash the majority of the way down. Would not recommend the effort.
