Route that takes in all the green tracks on the western side of Parklands. Suits most abilities - bit of climbing involved so some level of fitness required (otherwise just hop off and walk).

Starting from the car park along Radar Hill Road head along 'Rookie Road' which is a nice flowy track with many switchbacks to make climbing and descending better.

Pop out onto the fireroad and then head into the 'Big V' loop which takes you around some really scenic sections and involves a selection of dips and berms and a bridge.

Then back out onto fireroad and then onto Rookie Road again but keep going down onto Road Rage. At the firebreak (Grand Canyon) turn right and head up to the intersection, veer towards the right (basically right then left straight away). Follow that all the way up, keeping right after the cut log.

At the fireroad go left and then right in about 10m - you'll see single track, go along it until you pop back onto the fireroad - keep heading up the fireroad and then follow it along until your back at the start.
