      Still bad and not even easy to push up the side. Very wet and marshy/mud/holes/gaps.

      Top section above burn towards Kip Bypass, ruined due to tree felling operations. Major erosion and major ruts

      The path has been completely destroyed by forestry works near West Kip. It is passable only by riding on the marshy grass next to it.
