Most of the active foresting seems to finished, I was going up the hill but it looks mostly passable with maybe just a bit of sweeping

Still issues further down with logging operations, but the top is fine with some new features!

Top section mostly dry and clear - logging has caused a number of issues further down. Take care, but you can still get through.

 Top section running well, first jump has been rebuilt to make it a little higher and the following corner has had new dirt and drainage, so works much better.

 Running well - only did the top section as the rest was too wet. There is a new gap jump and drop off! Nails!

 Added a new berm and small gap jump today - see pictures. The top is running really well, loved hitting the tree jump today - a new down rap has been added here too!

 Rode here early on Bank Holiday Monday. A great session with Matt and Tris. Nailed both drops, loved being back on the tree jump and the new look first jump is also a lot of fun. So good to finally be back in here after all the wet weather. Good to be back on our home ground! Loved it!

 There has been a lot of logging work done over the past week or so, a lot of the woods is a mess as a result. Piles of logs everywhere and the place churned up by trucks and diggers. You need to take care in here. Some jumps have been smashed, but The Badgers is mostly good. We did have to repair the hump after the drop off (see photos) so we improved it! IF trees are getting cut down, you might as well use them!

 Rode here on Bank Holiday Monday. Lots of fun on the new features. Although a crash sending me down the drop without my bike was not so much fun!

 Loads of damage, parts are now too dangerous to ride. Do not ride this without checking first, rocks and logs all over the place! We will rebuild, but take care in there for now.

 Looked like they were deforesting the whole lot the other week
