The trail is short and quite easy. Especially since the most recent modifications. They have taken out the only technical section of trail that used to be in the middle which was a rutted rocky section. That is completely gone now and has been smoothed out. I'm not super pumped about that either. Its predominantly downhill when beginning from the end of the Tunnel of love trail and predominantly up in the opposing direction from the fire road. Very easily ascended and descended by a beginner. Used to be a fun little trail, now its a solid green dirt footpath with minimal features.

Access Info

Open public access all year round although this trail network is best not ridden after solid rains as the soil type causes the trail to be easily damaged when wet

       Nice track flows in from Chipline.. bit more technical but a newbie can do easily if oacing yourself. Just be aware of the hilly ride back up fire trail to 5 ways is STEEP for a few hundred metres.

       Koala has had some work recently to smooth out the rutted out sections. Fast and Furious! Best ridden from Five Ways.
