The trail basically runs from North Cliffs to Pine Walks, roughly following the northern hedge of the woods. The trail is basically a XC trail, but becomes a little more downhill with interesting features towards the bottom.
The top two sections, separated by a hedge which you round, have a number of potential lines for you to choose and switch between. There are some sections of roots and the odd hedge to negotiate, as well as weaving through the trees. I am planning on adding a few jumps through these sections on the lesser used lines to make it a little more interesting!
The bottom section (again after rounding a hedge) is always drier than the top. There are some root sections, flowing turns through the trees and then it opens up a little and speeds up towards the end. The very end section goes over a badger set (hence the name) where it is easy to get some air. You can either ride off the end of the set and stop, or turn right on to the top of the hedge. Ride along this and drop off to the right, through the ditch and over the hedge on the other side. If you are carrying enough speed you can finish with some air by popping off a mud jump onto the main trail.
There is plenty of fun to be had, especially if you like XC, but with some added features it will be even better.
This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

|Still wet in the usual spots, slows you down a bit! Some clown has put a lot of logs across the trail - take care!|

|Bit of mud about, a few branches down to stop you or fill the mud holes, I can't tell.|
