Single track traverses east below Summit Road and switches back on itself a couple of times before a final traverse to the top of the Bridle Path and Summit Road.
Fun track to ride as you pick your way through lava boulders that make parts of the sections quite technical.
A good step up if you've only been riding smooth single track like the Bowenvale Traverse track .

Access Info

Head up Mt Pleasant road to Summit Road or alternatively bike up Bridle Path Track. A tight dog leg turn on Summit Road indicates the top of the reserve with a small pull in area off Summit Road
