Mud is pretty sticky in parts, but this track is still mint year round.

Holding up well in the wet weather as usual on the climbing side. Be prepared to get sideways on the downhill though, as she's pretty wet in spots.

Track is strangely but awesomely dryish. Roots are a bit slippery as expected
