An option for kids and beginners not wanting big climbs, drop them off at Allington Road where they can head along Rimu and Miro to the new Magic Carpet loop before dropping down Lazy Fern to the main car park.

These trails are mostly wide with good site lines and gentle gradients suitable for beginners. Lazy Fern features some great native bush.

Utterly sodden. Couple bits of clay on corners are a little greasy, but all rideable if you're not a beginner.
