Green Multi-use Trail – 1.3km
This circular route, which is close to the car park, caters for family cyclists and less experienced riders. The trail features gentle gradients and does not include any technical trail features. It is also promoted as a walking trail so cyclists should expect to meet walkers and give way accordingly.
Yellow Skills Loop – 1.3km
The skills area includes a number of technical trail features of increasing difficulty, along braided trail. Skills areas are used to hone skills in a controlled environment, which can then be used on the wider trail network. The design allows for skills to be tested on the outbound journey to the main trails.
Blue Trail – 2.8km
Comprised of a network of trails, this route caters for beginner and intermediate mountain bikers. The route starts on the green trail and passes through the skills loop. It continues in a circular route before returning on a gentle descent back towards the trail head.
Red Trail – 4.7km (for the more experienced cyclists)
This trail uses the start of the blue trail before peeling off to complete a loop which circumnavigates the north western end of the forest, followed by a southern return loop back to the trail head.The trail features a number of technical trail features in order to provide a more challenging and rougher ride character than the blue trail.
