Notes:

One of the furthermost trails from the parking lot at East Kowen, Cora 1 is quite a nice ride of sweet winding single track that climbs and falls through some open pine forest before finishing in some natural bushland.

At the time of riding the trail was heavily covered in pine needles and I'm guessing that few ever venture this far out into the forest, but I certainly didn't regret it, the only problem is that the natural progression from here is Cora 2, however Cora 2 is gone due to logging.  

At the time of riding the logging operation was in full swing so when I should have gone right at the end of Cora 1 I was forced to go left.  Fearnside Way, the fire trail running parallel to the 3 Cora trails is fenced, so I was lucky that I was able to slide underneath the fence or I would have been forced to ride back.

Cora 3 appears to still be rideable however I couldn't get to the trail entrance due to the logging blockade. 

On the Trail Buddy App it shows a lower section of trail running up to the top corner, however I was unable to find the start of this trail.  My guess is it's fully overgrown.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
