Loop 4 is a full lap of Stromlo Forest Park’s mountain bike trails, riding the CORC Main Trunk Trail all the way. The climb takes you up towards Mt Stromlo and the descent to the Western side of the mountain is where the trails are much rockier and tree cover is more prevalent. At Slickrock junction you have a choice of turning left for the full loop (19km) or right for a superb descending short cut (14km). Returning along the northern trails through Wombat Junction you will have a flowing descending finish to the car park. To negotiate this trail you will need a good level of fitness with the technical skills to match. The climb is demanding in places and the descent and other areas are peppered with rocks and other obstacles.

      Kangaroos might be cute but weird alien looking creatures to anyone but Australians, but they present a very Australian hazard on trails.
