Had a great ride here with a group of us. Recommend four shoes or boots, although my horse only had fronts on and got around okay. Will go with four shoes in future, though. Thought it was well sign posted but my app said we only did around 17kms, so not sure if we missed a bit somewhere as this post says it's 24kms? Very pretty ride, wide roads in some parts and single file in others. A few hills, so definitely recommend a breastplate.

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.
