This track is getting overgrown but its also getting close to linking up with a track I was on yesterday

It finishes here and there is no way to get to the bridge

If you could read Thai you would see the km marker says ส้มตำ Som Tam 35 baht and
ไก่ย่าง Roast Chicken 15 baht!

You missed a cheap restaurant by that track.
