       Well worth the hour long climb up.
      The last few hundred metres once the farm is on your right is just s fire road.

       Its good but I was expecting better after the hype of it being in magazines etc. It was very wet for pretty much most of it which didn't help.

       Best long single track so far exploring the Shropshire hills. Fast and flowing, watch out for sheep & wild pony’s on the trail. The trail floods if it's been wet, but dress right and it’s a blast.
