      reporter Overgrown vegetation, track needs some maintenance and the features are rather slippery and dangerous. Needs attention.

      Needs a bit of groming in the track and at the entrance and exit a bit of a shame to see it like that

      The fallen trees are all clear, very little mud...rocks will be slippery until the sun dries them. Enjoy

       Poor condition. Poor attempt at a "north shore" type trail.

       this entire park is just a derelict, overgrown, long forgotten, waste of one's time. This track would be the worst. Covered in BlackBerry, much of the man-made structures are culling apart and some even thrown into the forest. Totally unridable.

       All trails open and riding well. All trails in Dunedin are cared for by volunteers, so please cut them a break and instead of moaning help out.
