Excellent news, I hope the owner maintains what is agreed to.

To celebrate this positive outcome, last week I decided to revisit the trail for a more extended visit.
I've written up a trip report here (in two sections):

A really snarky version of this is that 'they' want to absolutely bar the 4Wds and Trail Bikes from going thru the owner's property.
Which can be difficult when they turn up with angle grinders.
Never let it be said that I would advocate anything like setting the tires alight. Of course not.

Cheers

Yes, anti-social behaviour/vandalism is problematic in so many locations.
I'm sure we've all felt that way at times Roger.
Good news is that I saw no evidence of that on my walk last week. Let's hope it stays that way.
I'd hope the more who walk it the less likely those incidents will occur.
