Resurrection of a very overgrown route which fell into disuse some years ago due to fallen trees. These (3) have been removed. Another fallen tree at an angle has required a slight divert of the trail to give enough head clearance. The trail is fairly straight down and will be fast once all the loamy surface has gone. Will have a few roots and little rollover drops when it matures.

First ride, plenty of loose moss and vegetation from the work done to open this route for use. Will clean up pretty quickly with use.
