      A trail centre with a 20km red loop (with black options), and a shorter blue circuit for beginners. Also has a skills loop to warm up on and see what features will be on the trail. The trails are a mixture of machine built and volunteer built singletrack with fast, flowy sections with jumps and berms to tight,twisty and technical deep in the forest. The highlight for many is Hully Gully where riders plummet down and across a steep gully on the 30ft high berms! There are also some downhill tracks if you know where to look. The forest has a cafe and toilets along with plentiful car parking.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
