Beginner friendly, wide double track with zero tricky/technical features on flat country. This track is perfect for off-road first timers to build confidence cornering on loose dirt under wheel. In combination with Lagoon trail, a perfect family riding loop around the Town Common's freshwater lagoon.

Traversing the lagoon bund wall, the trail puts the rider high up overlooking the lagoon with extensive views across the wetlands. Look for teaming birdlife during the wet season (Dec-Apr).

Access Info

From near the Bald Rock car park (western end) or from steel gate junction with Lagoon trail (eastern end)
