A rough cut mower would do a dandy job on that trail.
We used a DR* rough cut mower for about 10 years. It left tall stubble and trees shoots that might flatten atv tires. We like a lower cut.

* can not recommend there products.

More pics of future clearing needed. In the top one, the shoots on the sides with be cut back or they come down into the corridor over the winter. Bottom photo will be a turn around point.

That’s some pretty rough stuff he’s going through in that video!
I recall a video DR made of there tow-behind mower which we got showing 4ft tall grass of sorts being knocked down with it. After getting it and putting it to use, we ended up doing around 2 hours or repairs for every 4 hours of mowing we did with it...... So I'll take Chapman made video with a grain of salt. :LOL:
