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
