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
