      There’s a big pine tree down over the trail about half way down. Easy enough to walk around the tree and carry on with the ride

       Currently a track that's evolving (being finished). Very steep and very technical sometimes with large exposed roots. Ground is soft and no rocks (generally) [top bit, didn't realise it goes all the way down to the plateau]. An alternative to the other rocky downhill tracks.

       Made it to the plateau, gets slightly harder thanks to rooty steep corners. Basically a "hard" but always a place to put your foot down, hence downgraded to "intermediate"? I've ridden easier black diamonds!

       This track has now matured and bedded in since the first reviews. Its now well formed. Good flow with nice drops. roots give it some challege. A good 'warm-up' track to get your eye in.

       Would be a fantastic track with a bit more work done on it. Needs some drainage put into wet areas and some berms built on more corners with a bit of metal so it can be riden in wet conditions as very slippery mud after rain. More advanced than intermediate but has great potential if MBO does some more work on it.
