Riding options

The marked courses are: KID STUFF, SHORT LOOP, LONG LOOP AND ARCHERY LOOP.

KID STUFF is a family friendly 5km track, well-suited to mums and dads trying to keep up with the kids.

SHORT LOOP is 16km, and shows the promise of further exploration.

LONG LOOP is 40km-plus, a feast of well-maintained single-track with features guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

ARCHERY LOOP is 11km if ridden via the speedy Lickety Split, or nearly 15km if ridden via Wonderland and Spider Web. Before Archery Loop returns to the car park, there is an option to rejoin the main loops, and ride anything up to another 40km.

All of the marked loops run the first couple of kilometres together. Just follow your chosen loop sign when it appears, and the red arrows until you see another sign, and so on.
