Pet Cemetery is a 4.9km green trail, that connects the longer green loop back to Arklow Adaptive and the car park.

With a fair bit of climbing, this trail follows an old railway formation. By combining Arklow Adaptive, Railway Rise, Highland Highway and Around About Arklow you have an easy loop of just over 20 km.

The loop can be further extended by the addition of two blue trails; Mornington Glory and the old favourite, Dead Cats to make a 24 km circuit.

Another option for this trail is to ride out of town on the Munda Biddi and continue heading north and return along Pet Cemetery back to where you started.
