      Tree across track, too large to move by hand, needs hand saw to clear, roughly half way along the track.

       A great track with a solid "outback experience". Some narrow sections with large dropoffs to the side but railing is being installed. A solid 5/5 from me.

       Thorn bushes growing onto track. Trail has beautiful scenery and is bikeable but would be a better hike. Many parts are narrow bench cut trail with erosion making the trail more narrow. Scetchy and hard to take in the scenery.

       Awesome track with great scenery, beware some cliffs/drop offs could be dangerous if to fall off at the wrong place. I miss read the description and took my 9yr, he was fine but stressful for me

       Awesome trail but long and a bit technical, not sure why all the low reviews! Note: currently washed out in numerous places (July 2019), pretty sketchy, stay off until it's fixed

       Amazing trail 5/5. Definitely not a grad 4 trail 2+ Grade, mabby a easy 3 if it’s raining a tone. Couple short exposed corners on the trail but really well built.

       Bit overgrown about 2/3s way through with blackberry shoots making riding by the edge that much more insensitive

       First half felt like a G3 at best but the second half gave me a good G4 feel. Blackberry marks on the arms and legs prove that I was there.
      Nice scenic ride that is work doing

       Good stuff this track....... technical and sketchy. No jump-fest but getting to the end without falling to your death is the achievement here

       Not as sketchy as you might be lead to believe. Intermediate level I would say. If you can do Junk & Disorderly, you can do this.
