The name Explosions was originally given to the section running down past the quarry. The trail head is situated approximately where Apiary break would intersect the trail if extended. It has been called this for some years until in July 2019 a large section of Never Ending Story was listed on Trailforks as Explosions. Many riders will still consider the quarry part to be Explosions and the lead in track to be Never Ending Story. The original Explosions has been a real buzz to ride with it's switchbacks and small berms. It is characterized with some rooty and rocky roughness that riders in Nerang will be familiar with.

       If long standing naming counts for anything, most of what has been named Explosions this week is actually Never Ending Story. Explosions is the part that runs down past the quarry (hence the name). Never Ending story is just that,. It's one of the longer trails and leads right into Explosions. What are your thoughts?

       It makes better sense and clarity for riders to start Explosions from the intersection with Pandora, NES and the link to NG29. Also think the link should be just that, a link, not part of Pandora.

       The bridges are on the verge of collapse, most need replacing
