A good size circuit from the carpark. Take the Wetland loop to Directa. Climb Directa to Jungle Gym, and carry onto climbing until Labyrinth. At the top of Labyrinth head down Spoonhill - 491 - and back onto Spoonhill all the way to Nga Tuna. At the bottom of Nga Tuna veer right around the Wetland loop back to Directa. Climb Directa and turn left into Beeline (don't forget to drop of the ramps) and head through Beeline extension to the carpark. Great fun!

Lots of muddy puddles, some deeper than others. Most are avoidable, but some aren't. Given the recent heavy rain, this comes as no surprise. Ok throughout a good majority of the trail, as it's very well packed down and has a bit of gravel, but there are a few bits where traction is a bit lacking if you pick the wrong line. The rocky parts on the brief downhill section are rather slippery. Not as leisurely as it usually is.

Beginning section really worn out, 491 is in much better shape. Slippery at end before you enter the park.
