All good except one small section with mud in the middle of the trail where there must be a natural spring.

 Originally built by Bryce Borlick in 2011 www.pinkbike.com/video/434491

Ridden respectfully and mainly in the dry for 4 glorious years. Shut down in 2014-5. Re-opened and given new life by Martin & Penny.
