Whether in a cereal box or as a MTB trail, kids love Fruit Loops.

This kid-friendly and beginner rider trail is a tame gateway to the rest of the Douglas reserve. It includes a wide and smooth track, with some small undulating sections and easy turns to help new riders gain confidence on dirt. Terrain is mostly flatish, with some small dips in and out of gullies.

Access Info

Linking with the the lowest section of Easy Street, this trail is a short loop around the outside of Scrub Pythons. It starts and finishes at the main car park/skills park at the Douglas reserve, on Angus Smith Drive.
