      Quite wet in places, washed out tracks from flowing water, rideable but possibly harder than classification suggests

      Three trees across path. Bike lift over one. A bit muddy in patches - rideable though

      Unbelievably Muddy, Would recommend if you love being covered head to toe in mud

       Completed in reverse.
      I can see why this track is not popular...more suited to walking for anyone other than an advanced rider.
      Rock steps for both traverses up the gorge face.
      Three trees are currently down, one of which requires awkwardly lifting your bike over.

       Best suited to a XC bike or if you want to practice trials tricks with some rock steps down a steep incline.
      Otherwise excellent interval fitness training on a MTB. Not particularly flowing and it is hard to get speed to do any jumps.
      Three trees still down over path.
      Very muddy after rain.
