This loop is mainly on singletrack narrow trails and is suitable for those looking for a more challenging cycle. It begins along a two-way section of trail and covers much of the Park. There are good views along the lakeshore near Rinmaher Point south towards Terryglass and east towards Portumna Bridge. Signal signs provide information about local features of fauna and flora, including red squirrel and fallow deer.

This trail is open and flowing with gentle gradients and, while not technically challenging, is best experienced on a mountain bike.
