A great learners ride that has bumps, dips and easy climbs. It is basically a 6km loop back to Craters MTB Park car park. It provides access to the Kids Track, Inwards Goods, Piker, Outwards Goods and Ferret. If you want a short cut to Craters MTB Park car park or to make a shorter loop, then take Piker. You ride through established pines and cleared areas. Park map no 21.
