A bit last minute, Lew & I are meeting at 700 Year stadium 0930am tomorrow. Probably will do Mae Rim single track then up to the view point. Anyone who wishes to come along you are welcome.

Route :


700 yr stadium

In through the police housing

North on the Mae Rim single track

Buggy trail from Mae Rim

Entrance to the leech trail

Enduro training area behind 700 yr stadium




We could see rain up in the mountain as we were preparing to start & as we got higher it got wet, you can see the rain in the background

Once the rain cloud had moved north, it dried out pretty quick

We'd planned to do the challenging "Leech Trail". Fortunately it was very overgrown which was enough of an excuse not to do it.

With the rain continuing to threaten, we got our asses out of the high elevation stuff & went and played at the enduro training area behind the 700 yr stadium

All in all a good day out which got the heart pumping

Pity about the rain.

It was getting a bit too greasy to be heading up any higher which is where it all seemed to be.

The approach to the leach trail has changed, if you veered left about 100m before you took that photo, just after the "house" that has been newly built, it leads you down a steep hill to the main track, then you would have avoided all that growth. We did the track last week. It was pretty slippy though, so good choice!
