P51 - rebuilt and open

Posted by Paul Jennings on March 17, 2018 at 7:55:07 AM

Great news - P51 is open for your riding pleasure from tomorrow (Saturday) morning. The team from @easytrailservices have worked magic on this tough bit of land and the result is a lot of fun. A bit easier than Firball when it's all settled in, but at the moment there are still some soft patches and loose marbley surfaces so ride with a bit of caution.

One request though - please do not ride UP the trail. P51 is now strictly one way. You can still access it from the skid site, but it's much better to push up the firebreak and go from the top. A new climbing trail is underway and will hopefully be ready in the next few months.
