Highly recommend this ride, track is a bit soft (but then it has been raining a bit :) and it is new) would suggest at least reading the map before going, not that you can really get lost but it does help to know which direction they suggest to get the sweet downhill (cough or you might end up with a long up hill and 4wd downhill :( ).

It is not particularly technical (as the grade 2-3 suggests) but if your idea of exploring nature is on two wheels then this is a rare chance to ride through native forest :thumbsup:
