Mindmap3, there are still issues behind the scenes that are stopping the new Fiveways section from being launched. Our XC builders continue to push on this and hopefully it'll be sorted soon. There's nothing sinister going on just stuff that needs to be sorted. The section will open, it's just a case of being patient for a while longer.
The existing diversions will be removed when the work is done. There is a lot of forestry work going on which is impacting on the trails but also giving the opportunity for both contractor and volunteer repairs to be implemented to upgrade the sections whilst also reinstating them. Expect more of this in the future we see the ongoing closure of selected sections as being crucial to the long term future of the trails within the working forest. On joust volunteer built sections will take longer than the machine build and the FC simply can't have full time contractors on board so you're all stuck with Chase Trails.
Oh and although I don't ride the trails that often I've not had an issue with any of the black section entrances ;o)
