Track signage
 
ensure visibility
record any damage and anomalies and fix asap

establish ample drains where cross track gradients are slight and downtrack drainage develop e.g. on ridge lines
clear established 300mm track, remove backslope debris, loose stones and timber
develop benched track where necessary - 300mm wide with backslope of 45 or less (see diagrams on and )
