The Redwood Loop (Grade 2 - Beginner)

This starts from the carpark on Wakari Road and zig-zags up to the top of the Redwood trees. It then loops down the hill back to Wakari Creek. From here you can continue down the creek on the Grade 3 Slytherin Trail, or cross the bridge and take the McGouns Extn track back to the carpark. McGouns Extn is shared use, so watch out for walkers. The loop has two see saws to try your skills on.

       It may rate green, but easily the most fun bit of the forest - fast switchback downhill with high berms. I have a mate to claims he can [nearly] do it with no brakes.
