Trail Bird Cage
Nice gentle ride, there's a huge cage across from the entrance. Sad to see the urban expansion up to the conservation park.

There's a large tree down after the storm, across the track within 1000m of start. Need to carry the bike over or around it. If someonebhas a chainsaw ....

Route had some good features. Did spend a bit of time on the fire trails though. Was great to get started but I’ll do a different route next time while incorporating the best of this one.

Ride this trail all the time because of its extremely flowy nature (if riding west-east). Couple of great little gaps if you get the right speed and is great for beginners to start off there fast, flowy trails. Best rode when dry, rode it when it was wet last time and had to stay on my breaks on the corners. Best access via the end of Teviot Road and off Teviot Trail.

Top section is really fast with high burms but it is kinda short and you have to climb out before you can start going down again.
