Lots of large trees down over track. Maybe as many as 30.. time for DoC to have a look. Very challenging to manoeuvre my body over trees let alone...

 My ride log describes the state of this track.. as many as 30 large trees down over track. Action needed.
I’m not recommending this track for anyone riding. Bike hiking but allow a big day out

 Like previous comment, i do not recommend riding this up. Most of section is hike-a-bike, and many obstacles makes it challenging with a bike
