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.

Continue past Borderline for about 1km until you see the start of Bull-A-Varde on your right. Follow the switchbacks up Bull-A-Varde until a trail drops to the left. This is the start of Bull Run.

At the bottom of Bull Run follow the unsealed Hill Road up past the farm house. Approximately 500m past the farm house is a gate on your left hand side and large trees on your right. This is the Old Coach Road connector track. Be sure to close any gates you open

Continue along until you connect with Old Coach Road again and keep riding until to reach the start of Borderline.

Borderline will take you to the bottom of Stratton St to the car park.

Andrew loses his footing and has a soft over the handlebars crash into some bushes. He's getting good at doing that! #FridayFails #NewZealand...

Trail is great, a couple of areas have reasonably deep ruts which tend to make tricky sections a bit more challenging, but otherwise don't spoil the fun too much

Has dried out a bit and running nicely. Looks like some work has been done on the berms at the top end. Thanks BAMBA, this is a great trail and an asset to the park
