This loop is the perfect introduction to mountain biking with easy climbs and fun singletrack descents. It is essentially one gradual climb followed by one long descent with most of the loop on narrow, twisty singletrack trails which have very variable surfaces including, loose rocks and gravel, mud, water and protruding roots and may be quite slippery when wet. The singletrack trails are quite technical in places and feature some elevated timber boardwalk sections with exposed edges.  There are also likely to be encroaching vegetation and trees throughout.
