       Great trail but is very overgrown for about 1/3.

       Shame it's overgrown in spots, but very worth it anyway. Would probably disagree with the blue rating. Black seems more appropriate, especially in current conditions.

       There will be some basic maintenance and signage going in there over the next few weeks. The experience will be much improved.
