      Recent rain and machine work have 500 running real nice. From the tabletops down has seen lots of work clearing Lantana and reshaping trail as needed

      Love this trail! New fav in SE Qld. Fast and flowing with a few technical rock sections. First on the trail clears the spider webs though. Beautiful scenery with great views.
