For the avoidance of doubt, the Transport Agency is not responsible for the maintenance of these tracks and therefore is not endorsing these tracks as safe to use. While the Agency has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information and descriptions of these tracks, the information is of a general nature only and can change from time to time. Readers are encouraged to investigate weather prospects, the conditions of the tracks, and the skill levels required for the tracks.
