Sweetacres is a multi use track. It caters for walkers, runners and horses so be mindful of this when you're barrelling down it. You'll often see evidence of horses and that can be a bit slippery .

Sweetacres is a mix of open farm land, farm track and single track. It takes you from Old Coach Road to Hill Road where Hill Road and Sweetacres Drive intersect.

It is fast and it is slippery when wet. And it is fun.

There is no real return from this trail. From the bottom there are 2 ways back to the start: Up Sweetacres Drive and take a right at Normandale Road, which will take you to Old Coach Road; or up Hill Road into Belmont Regional Park, follow the sealed farm track to the farm house and take the gate on the left next to the old WWII ammunition bunker on to Old Coach Road.

Sweetacers is possibly shorter but steeper.

Access Info

Access is from Old Coach Road. Old Coach Road can either be entered from the end of Normandale Road or from the entrance on the left just past the farm house in Belmont Regional Park.

Riders must enter Sweetacres from Bull-A-Varde (which is also the entrance to Bull Run). Keep right. If you take the left turn you will end up on Bull Run. Bull Run will take you to the lower car park in Belmont Regional park whereas Sweetacres will take you to approximately 200 meters before the entrance to Belmont regional park
