Nice loop just under 30Km taking in the best bits of the forest... and sadly a few not very exciting parts to be sure to sprint those Eye-wink

I don't recommend driving down Old Argyle Road to the start as it's a very rough firetrail. At least it was last time we were there.

Instead park up by Ferndale Road, a kilometre or so North East of the start marked here.

This looks like a lot of firetrail, but it's really quite nice stuff, eg:

Does anyone have a link to a 25/30km loop around the forest, the above link seems to be broken?

Apologies for the broken link. All sorted now.

Thanks Rob.

Do you know if the linked trail is still current or if the trails have been moved due to logging?

As most of this is firetrail doubt logging (if there has even been any) wouldn't have any effect. If you can't find the single track sections it's still a very nice ride.
