New to mountain biking? This loop of easy trails on flat country is your gateway to a life's journey to explore and enjoy Douglas Mountain Bike Reserve. It will help you get going and gain confidence riding on winding dirt tracks in a natural bush setting.

Great loop for the kids to enjoy with the parents.

Remember to bring a spare tube & pump in case of flats, plenty of drinking fluids and sun protection.
