From Rotary Park follow the bitumen trail east. It becomes dirt after about 100m. After about 1km the trail reaches a fork (A). Continue on the left fork and follow the fire trail up a steady hill until it flattens out at the top (B) and turn right down a sandy car trail until you hit the airport runway. Turn left and follow the runway to the northern end and turn right (C), following the main trail along the fence line through the trees. The trail suddenly comes out at a wide gravel trail with power lines above (D). Here you turn hard right almost back on yourself and follow the smaller trail south-west. After about 150m you will cross the gravel track again (caution – the crossing is badly rutted). After crossing the trail narrows and speeds up along a fun bit of winding single track (see pic1).

There are occasional large trees across the track – follow the detour left around the trees. When you reach a fork in the trail, follow the left and most used trail. Eventually you will come out on a wider trail (E) which you continue left on until you reach a turn to the right. Follow this for about 250m until you come to another intersection (F). Continue straight ahead across a bridge over the river (see pic2). Continue for about 1km until you hit a sandy left turn and a “T” intersection (G) where you turn left. Follow this until you reach the carpark (caution – at the bottom of the second fast downhill there is a gate across the track with room for bikes on the right). Through the gate you hit bitumen and the picnic area and toilets.

Continue past the carpark and look for a sign on your left pointing up along a small trail under the trees to the dam – there is a testing short, sharp climb at the end for about 25m to the dam and you are here.

For the return, ride across the dam and head down the hill, following the gravel road for about 1km until you see a sign pointing left (H) (ignore the first sign pointing to a walking track). Almost immediately you turn left you will cross the river (caution – in winter the river can flow fast). A short climb brings you to a vehicle track where you turn left, and follow this until you come out at the intersection near the bridge (pic2). Turn right then almost immediately left to follow the Summer Route home.

This is a picturesque undulating section following the river line – in winter it can be flooded in sections but is generally passable. For alternative follow the Winter Route (see blue dotted line). After a few kilometer you will come to a trail to the left, heading downhill (I). This is where the Winter Route also joins up. Turn left. After a couple of uphill section you will come to a clearing after which the track heads downhill (Caution – beware of loose gravel at the bottom). Turn right and after about 750m the trail will come out on the original trail at (A). Head to the left and follow the river back to Rotary Park.
