       A long track if you join onto handle the jandal. ..prox 4.7km I think.
      Bumpy but a good warm up ride and good 1st blie track if you are new to the park or have been on the couch over winter. 4 stars

       This track has been closed since winter. Adventure park staff told me they wont be opening it again for years (until the trees grow back so its easier to maintain), so Im not sure why they bother keeping it on the map. Such a shame, was a great track.
