You still have to ride alongside Steve Irwin Way which is a fast and busy road but there is a wide shoulder and you can also ride on the inside of the safety rail.

Another loop around the Ewen Maddock Dam that includes the Ferny forest trails. You can add on as many loops of Ferny Forest trails as you want before proceeding onto the road and back to Maddock Park.
