       Super wet at the moment, rutted out in the top parts. Arrowtown Choppers have cleared pines along the way making it a bit more exposed, plenty of roots, lots of fun

       Badly overgrown only went in 100m then turned around. Was super fun last time I rode it a couple of years ago.

       Not recommended, super overgrown. Looks abandoned, thorn bushes everywhere.
