A Short loop for the youngest members of the family.

From the Scotts Rd car park head into Ice Breaker, wind you way around and back up to the dam. The trail climbs at a gentle gradient from here up to where it joins Arapuke Rd.

To get to Swamp Monster ride back along Arapuke Rd towards the Scotts Rs carpark, the trail starts on your left after 50m or so, a fun run back down to where you started from.

These 2 trails can be ridden on the smallest wheels, even runner bikes if your kids are keen. They are a great way to introduce your kids to proper mountain biking.
