 Top 100-150metres of forest has been harvested but there’s some tracks (like “digger tracks”. This section is near unrideable when wet as it’s topsoil and tree roots. The bottom 2/3rds is variable riding. Personally think the flow of descent could improve by removing a small number of trees in some locations but I imagine this cannot be done due to being forestry stock.
