 Saw somewhere the other day that corkscrew was being closed as a quad/ATV track was being built, any chance there was some confusion between quad and 4 wheeler and this is the actual reason?

 Yeah the bottom of corkscrew is closed at the moment to stop people going down onto this track, it should be reopened once this opens on the 31st, but I do know they are talking about making further changes. If you have any questions head to Facebook Dean Trail Volunteers (group) and I'm sure the guys will let you know what's going on Smile
