Mountain bike track

This basic route is mostly through farmland, following the yellow waymarkers. Only small sections of the track are on formed surfaces. The track will lead you up to the highest part of the park as well as to the southern fringes. There are fine views and plenty of shady rest spots along the way. The track is a basic cross country route only, and involves cross slope and up/down terrain. A moderate level of fitness and experience is required.
