The Ferny Forest trails have been designed with the beginning mountain biker in mind. As the name suggests this circuit will take you through the beautiful forest that makes up the shoreline of the Ewen Maddock dam. There is a little bit of everything, rock gardens, log rollovers and a flow section but kept easy so as to not discourage anyone.

A little damp still, some large puddles and soft sections, if we get more rain will be better to stay off for a few days

 A fantastic fun trail that twists and turns through out the loop, lots of roots and small rock sections. For a beginner or for a skilled person that loves to go fast cornering. Very scenic
