Return of the Penguin is a great fun way to return to the centre of the Penguin MTB park. Built in conjunction with the "Stalking Rooster" trail in time to be used for the 2017 Australian Masters Games. It proceeds to climb back up from the end of the "Stalking Rooster" trail before a wicked descent through a Myrtle Creek crossing and climbing again to descend to the Myrtle Creek wetland area and joining the "Ring Tail" trail climb.

Access Info

Access via "Stalking Rooster" trail either as a loop from the main park or access via the short dual direction section from the Montgomery car park and the Dial Range
