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.

Nice and dry. Some corners are pretty sandy and will swallow your front wheel but no different to normal. Also met some very courteous young men...

reporter Still a bit wet but very few puddles and the bad bit between the rock gardens is not full of water.

 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
