      Trail cleared. Excellent chainsaw work on the downed trees. Surface still loose in places, but overall ideal traction.

      Overnight rain has dampened the track making for excellent traction. Some erosion and loose stones in some corners

       I went here with my 11yo son and 9yo daughter. I really enjoyed this track, it would be quite fast if I was on my own. It is a great track for beginners, both the kids did really well. A few steep sections where they had to push up and a few tight turns that my daughter found a little challenging, there were a couple of sections along embankments where the drop could be intimidating to a nervous rider. Overall though it was great. Being so short a trail it's not really worth the drive, but to take someone with not too much experience it's worthwhile.

      We'll definitely be back as it's not really out of our way and the kids really enjoyed it.

       Good track, dry and very loose at start after turning right at entry, ok after that. Took two kids, 13 and 9, mostly manageable and we are by no means experienced. Laughed a lot, skidded loads.

       Really great for beginners, just remember to bring lots of water as there was no water fountain in sight.

       Good track, nice bush scenery, suitable if you’ve been riding off-road for a while and looking for a new challenge.
