Narrow with high ledges avoiding the mud ( good balance required ) at the start but easy after that.
Quite fun when bone dry

 Almost too narrow to pedal in places. Could be worth a go when drier, but not sure if its worth going out of my way for. Two trees also down.

 You need to stick to the high path, but it's easy to fall into the gaps with it being so wet.
Can be a bit like a teeter totter!

 Yea, I should have gone for the higher track. Thanks fella! Certainly one to have a crack at in drier weather.

 Makes you wonder if there would be objections if you went down with tools and sliced the high parts down into the troughs and stamped the whole lot down flat.

 Don't give me any ideas! I am sure a few gap jumps could be squeezed in! I think we have also tried to add in a couple of the same trails! I am sure we will bump into each other one day on the bikes! Have a good one!

 I'm just adding them because I've not really had anyone to show me other than looking on here/strava.
Other times I've just fired up google maps, had a look at the images and find what looks like a path.
Some good, some bad. But my main rule is avoid roads if poss so I've found a fair bit that'll get me places without playing with cars even if they are not strictly single track trails.
Maps already looking far improved for the srea just how much you can get around just on paths.
I've a few more to try out around Carn Brea which I'll add once I ride.

It does have the making of a flow trail this, but I can't see it happening.
