To start the loop either get dropped at the end of Normandale Road/start of Old Coach Road or park at the bottom of Stratton street and ride up Stratton St, Cottle Park Dr, Normaldale road to the start of Old Coach road.

Once on Old coach road ride until you come to a gate with a open log barrier on your right. Immediately after the gate on the left is the start of Borderline.

The upper and middle sections seems to be holding up well with all the rain. Once your out of the bush line and onto the clay berms, be prepared to drift.

The gate is currently closed at the top due to livestock, however there is no need to use the deviation that was in place during lambing.
