Flows downhill to start and then becomes a flowing cross country track up and down to exit on the road heading towards Waikopua Rd. There are a couple of streams to cross and can be very muddy. A decent length of track which is great to ride when dry.

      All dry and running fast. Also cleaned up some ruts on the steep uphill and tidied up a route around a fallen tree.

      The uphill has dried up enough so that it should be completely rideable.

      Still some muddy patches on the uphills, but almost completely rideable.
