Trails Update: 17/09/21

Trails Notice: Approx 275m of outward and inward MTB Trails adjacent to the Campsite will be closed this week Monday 13 - Friday 17 September 2021 in order to create a two-way trail leading out from the upper car park to the Red MTB Trails (The Mountain & Sika's Run).

Cyclists should use the scenic drive for this period for outward and return trips.

Description

A more gradual climb from the car park on a shared fire road brings you to a junction where you can choose from one of two blue trails.

You'll either turn left and join The Roller Coaster - a section you can pick up some real speed on through the forest until some small turns and features near the bottom.

Or you can opt for Kelan's Chase, where you'll encounter another climb toward's Ladies View Point before a long descent filled with fast flowy fun, tight corners and some short pedalling sections. 

Conditions

River Run and Kelan's Chase are both closed currently due to damage to the trails.
