      Tree down about 300-400m past second waterfall. It’s hard to see as it’s around a blind corner. Have stood some sticks up before with blue tape.

      Best rail I’ve ever ridden. Lots of technical bit and also very wet and the corners ar a bit tight

      Definitely some tight corners, all rideable though. Some fairly rocky and rooty sections but all good in the dry.

      Loads of fun and seems to go on forever. Switchbacks maybe tight, but are not as tight as some Nelson trails where you need to be able to endo around the corner...
