      Large tree across the trail about half way down the last descent, it's on the fast bit too so could do someone a lot of damage.

       If you're looking for massive drops and jumps you'll obviously be disappointed - this is a green after all.
      However, if you're after a trail to give your mates or young rippers a great taste of what mountain biking can offer - through some lovely woodland, this is a really nice swoopy undulating trail. What this also means however is that even if you're after something far far more technical, just up the speed on the trail and this green can be an absolute blast.
