       Personally I think this trail should be rated a black instead of a double black

       Yup - you are partly right. Presently the trail doesn't present many double black options because the original line is hardly ridden any more. The exposed downhill ledge and the larger drop at the end are double black. There are two unused double black optional drops midway that are double black also (>1.3m high).
      So do we change the rating and sign the higher difficulty features, or keep the rating and restore the trail to what it once was? Personally I vote for the latter.

       Great trail! One of my Hartland favourites. Lots of great features on this trail (especially the final third). Correct that the ride-arounds are a bit more worn in than the more challenging line on the lower part of the trail. Have a look, hit the features!
