       Sick trail with some challenging woodwork. Probably not ideal for wet days.

       Boundary is maintained by an independent builder - who would very much like whoever is rebuilding structures on the trail to STOP. There's a plan to rebuild the recently removed, rotten, TTFs, and going in and doing your own work causing her to burn time she could be using to finish up the planned and permitted projects (its also a fine-able offence in the DNV). The structures WILL BE REPLACED.

      So just hold your horses and be patient. She has a plan, and and would appreciate if whoever is interfering with it would stop.

      If you'd like to get in touch about this issue, you're welcome to send me a message, or contact the builder directly.

       Classic shore, steep janky rock rolls and woodwork. Stoked to see this kind of trail still around!

       This is trail is a lot of fun. Some interesting rock rolls and fun woodwork, just the right amount of challenge.
