Fast, flowing machine built trail with jumps and table tops and bermed corners where you can pick up a lot of speed. Tends to get a bit rutted with lots of use and quite dusty in summer but rarely gets muddy so a good track to ride in the rain.

      Adopter cleared some more drains, skimmed some moss off berms, and rebuilt the entry where trails merge near the end.

      Adopter did a cupla trail check runs after all that rain. Lots of grip and not very slippery considering the amount of rain we had. Moist soil...

      Adopter put in another cupla early evening sessions clearing silt build up. Lots of friendly riders out, even a few fellow pixies stopping for a chat.

      New shovel day, great for clearing out more silt layers.
