Track simplification

Recorded track is a loop from Mossman. 1st part is sealed road climb of 450 metres up the Rex Range before turning onto a singletrack including a descent of around 400 metres in 3.2 km. The singletrack has some extra steep sections and some flowing sections through pretty open rainforest. There's a bit of wait-a-while to watch out for and some washed sections of track which can grab your front wheel. Track comes out on a sealed country road at the causeway over the South Mossman River which is popular for a swim or picnic. A couple of km brings you back to the start. Easy loops could also be done out of Port Douglas, or via Shanonvale or just get dropped off at the top! 8/1/2012 track has suffered from cyclone Yasi with many trees accross the track. Have started to clean it up but it will take a long time. Add another hour plus to the ride and lots more sweat! 19/2/2012 more cleanup completed and the track is taking shape again. Only a couple of trees down that can't be ridden around or over. Wait a while cut down and track obvious. The very start of the track is a bit hard to see and obscured by recently fallen scrub. Go down the driveway to the Lychee farm (on right just past the top lookout), then just before the farm fence go right into the bush and you will pick up the track. Follws the boundary fence of the farm for the first part of the trip.
