      Forsyths Mill always seems like a fairly long drive for such a short loop. However every metre of this fun singletrack loop is packed with action. The short return to the car park and lack of any major climbs make it attractive to beginner riders. There is plenty here for the more experienced rider though with fast corners, tight turns, log overs and some Black rated obstacles near the end of the loop.

      Forsyths is the ideal destination for a large group of mixed abilities - you can all ride round at your own speed and never be far away from a re-group in the car park. The very short beginner loop is also a great introduction.

      Getting There:
      Forsyth Mills is just off the Great Eastern Highway 11km to the East of Mundaring. Shortly after passing the large left hand turn to Old Northam Road turn right onto Gorrie Rd. Forsyth Mills is imediately on the right.

      Route Directions:
      The trail starts from towards the back right of the carpark. A singeltrack path heads off into the bush. Follow the track in a clockwise direction. For the most part the trail is obvious. Occasionally it will run along a 4WD track, be careful to pick up the trail when it turns off. After the first lap you won't go wrong.

      There is also a shorter kids loop near to the car park.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
