Rode this track from Mundaring Sculpture Park to Lake Leschenaultia (Kep track goes past a trail leading into the lake area), easy flat riding. One cross of Great Eastern Highway and a few roads. Relaxing ride through some forest sections and bush borders the trail. Downhill jumps located before turn off at Mt Helena. Great trail to increase kilometres into a ride with options to do the Railway Heritage Trail and Goat Farm Downhill.

Im re-reviewing this track because I have now done the full length from Northam to Mundaring. If you are going to ride a 75km trail, then obviously you ride it for what it is - not for a challenging test of your bike skills, but for a pleasant cross country adventure through changing scenery, beautiful landscapes, and varying terrain. And for that, it is great. Maybe Im biased, I had perfect weather and the track was as quiet as it could be. I didnt see a soul for the first few hours and apart from the physical challenges I found the ride very relaxing and enjoyable. As a result I would have given this 5 stars without a second thought, but for the appalling lack of directions and signs. I spent the first hour of the day pedalling around northam trying to find the start of the trail, and once I did I had to turn around a few times when I took a wrong turn, as well as spend a bit of time sitting still scratching my head.

Havent ridden the full track but I find it a great ride for beginners or those who want a day off from the demanding stuff. Plenty of clean singletrack with a few little fast sections thrown in. If you wander off the trail you can actually find some pretty demanding fast and/or technical descents to test your skill on, and you can also ride it at a level to really test your abilities. Yesterday I managed to throw myself down an almost 90 degree decline, only 5 metres from the main trail, and pulled off a lucky escape from a 20km/h downhill corner slide.
