A pretty good loop, but a couple too many 20% fire roads and missed detours for it to be perfect.

New to Adelaide. Where should I park and start for this circuit?

Not sure if you've tried the loop yet, but either at the Blackwood Football Club or corner near Craigburn Rd/Hayman Retreat seemed fine.

Trail Gully Blue
Rutted, rocky, relatively steep and quite overgrown. Significantly harder than other blue trails in Craigburn.

Trail Little River
Slippery trail. Need to carry the bike through quite a few spots.

Nice and cruisy heading down, the loose small gravel vs the tight hairpins at the top mean you don't want to go too hard; there aren't really berms or similar to maintain speed.

Trail Wattle trail
If you're travelling West, parts of this track are unridable until around Marri Track, then it's all good.
