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.

       Narrow switchback single track with trees either side, easy gradient climb. Very addictive because of where it leads to.

       Really good ride. In the wet it stays underneath the thick forest canopy so an easy climb regardless of the weather. We'll worth it!
