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.
