This was the first trip to this area for all of us. The cross country track was great fun - nice winding single track. We only had time for one loop. Chris and Clare like it so much that they went back to it the next day. The idea for the trip came from the trailflix website where it is well described here. Thanks Grant Byrne. The track was developed by Wollongong MTB Club and it may be worth checking their website to make sure there are no races. The loop we did was around 10 kms long.

Above - here is the Google Earth GPS plot of the loop that we did. A Google maps version that is zoomable can be found here. More Google Earth images and the ride prefile can be found after the photos.

Nearly all these photos are frames of digital video.
