Whelp Stone Slab:
Impressions: Overall good, there's some excellent singletrack, and the Big Dipper is huge fun, enough to do it several times It has 2 of the longest boardwalks I've ever done, made of split logs, and so long as you're going cross grain, there's plenty of grip. My feeling was that they'd used barely enough material on the first section we did (nearest Tosside) though the other tracks were more substantial, however, we were already seeing the same thing as the NFT in Grizedale when it was first built, where some sections are collecting water and turning into mud dips. Currently the signage is hopeless - all the old markers are still present, and it appears that many trails are bidirectional - at least by default. Without a guide I doubt we'd have found the best bits.
