A 3Rivers Trails Permit is required to access this route. See the 3 Rivers Trails website for permit details.

Easy, gravel road, jeep tracks & single tracks with some technical (with Chicken Runs!). Suitable for beginner mountain bikers that are use to off road riding.

The route takes you out of the Crossways gate and along the road to the Upper Yellow single track trail. On this trail you can decide to add the 2km Bridge View loop which is a more technical, rocky section with awesome views. The Upper Yellow loops back through the forest and ends across the Crossways dam. Including the Bridge View loop this section is 9km.

From the Crossway dam you cycle on tar through the village before entering the Lower Yellow Monkey single track which loops back to the starting point. On the Lower Yellow you have the option of alternative routing down Long Drop Alley or the You're Gorgeous Trails.
