Hand built singletrack through the Beech Forest on Ben Lomond. Some exposed drops off the side of the trail and quite narrow in places. Couple of steep sections on Fernhill side leaning more towards Grade 4/Very Difficult.

Access Info

Ride up Skyline Access Road (or take Gondola) ride up past the luge chairlift and take a right just past the top building up steep 4WD track Turn left onto Ben Lomond trail. 10 or 15m in take the left fork on the single track to avoid riding on the walking trail. Don't take any other forks until you are out in the open again at the original start. Remember the Ben Lomond trail is primarily a walking track so be nice to walkers!

Pretty wet and boggy in places, particularly at Fernhill end. Short section could be worth walking if really muddy.
