This is a mountain bike park so watch out for other users (bikers, runners, walkers and dogs). Start by gate and head up gravel road to the first track starting on your right. The way around the park as its pretty obvious and not difficult to navigate. You could spend a bit of time looping around to easily extend this beyond 6km. At the highest point there is downhill section that walkers and runners are not allowed (signposted). I respected this despite being in the park by myself and returned back down the hill a slightly different way.

Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
No water available. There was a pond I came across as one point but I wouldn't drink from it as image it was formed from farmland runoff.
I went after a period of rain and tracks were still in good condition. However, many are clay based so I could image they would get slippery in winter and possible quite muddy.
Just beware of other users (perhaps don't wear headphones)
