This is an easy grade "Family" orientated loop. Not exactly a beginner loop, but still on the easy side with some great descending through some nice native stretches. There are two river crossings, so expect to come back with wet feet.
Starting at the Harwood Carpark, start by following the track clockwise taking the left hand track when you go through the gate. The climb is up through grassy farm paddocks, and then around to the first creek crossing. you then follow down a farm road for a while before turning right into the bush and over the creek again.

At this point you climb up a meandering trail through some pristine naive bush and come out onto a grassy top.
A fast ride across the top and into the native bush again for a fun and windy ride back down to the carpark.
