Time Required: I did the 2.28km in 15 minutes, but you could spend a lot longer here going around. As we had just come from Ambury Regional Park, we were a bit tired.

Final Rating: ★★★★☆

IN MY BACKPACK

As I knew I would not be out here for long, I left my backpack in the car. The track never goes too far from the carpark so I wouldn’t say you need your backpack on you.

THE RIDE

I really enjoyed this track, it is very different to Totara Park as the track is a bit faster, with tighter bends and quite a number of jump sections. The track is made from loose gravel which resulted in a few wheel slips but overall I really enjoyed it.

It was really cool how they incorporated the barn into one of the tracks, and id be keen to go back here and try out the other tracks here.
