A family friendly trail that meanders and winds its way around the picturesque Lake Derby giving the rider plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the stunning surrounds. Multiple lookouts for platypus spotting or snapping photos and also a beautiful beach section is the ideal location for a swim and other water activities.

       Another new track for Derby, a great one for kids of all ages and skills. Also a nice warmup track before climbing wochya upta.
