As far as an "Adaptive" trail goes this is a long way off the mark...
Much of it is off camber and hilly.
It would be my recommendation to try this if you have power assist with good range and be sure to take at least one fit support rider as there are also a few sections that if not very careful you could find yourself in the bushes...
We also tried the new loop to the western side and found that to be an absolute nightmare for access and dont believe there was sufficient input from the riders it was targeted...
Certainly not the beginners trail...
Thankful though that someone is t least attempting for inclusion.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
