but why in the piccie are people pretty much laying a smooth road in the woods?
Here you go. This is what the dried out version looked like. You're free to go and build your own trail to this standard in your local woods.http://www.mbswindon.co.uk/build-report-8-sept-2012/
doesn't mean i particular love these types of trails but with reference to the conditions its sounds a feasable way to make a trail you can enjoy all year in your area.
Scott your answer wasnt very informative at all..
