Fast and flowy, nothing crazy; a few drops, and a couple of jumps at the end. Access it by riding up 142 main, or Branch access Road if you're looking for a challenge.

      Trees down. Cleared as much as we could but need a chainsaw. Some sections are rideable but keep on the lookout. All bridges are still good
