Has anyone heard or read up on a new free ride area?

Also watched afew clips of SH locals over Swinley riding "off the beaten track" sections, know my way around the usual trails but seen a couple of clips that look similar to some sections at Winterfold! Anyone seen or rode these?

I thought they'd flattened the 'off trail' sections? I know they did away with the gully for sure. Other than that there are little bits here and there that are not strictly on the trail but I still don't think I'd drive there for them...

Yep... there's bits of info on facebook and their website.

Three black runs being built and a pump track and dirt jumps to follow.
