Easy run through some pine trees on Grade 1 MTB tracks. Grab your kids for a jog or get them on the bike while you run. Dogs under control at all times (on leash)

Starting at the gravel car park you enter by climbing over the white forestry gate, follow gravel road for 50 meters, Turn Left, keep your eye out for the track sign Freddy Flinstone - it's on your right in the pine trees. Once Freddie Flintstone finishes exit on the gravel road to your left and follow until you meet up with another gravel road. On your right is Bedrock Rise - head up there for approx 300 metres and you'll come to Pebbles on the left. Once you get to the end of Pebbles follow your nose out (left) on gravel road back to car park.

The tracks are dual use (MTB and walking) and are also 2 way, so you can do an out an back when you get to the end of PebblesTrack if you please.

Update: keep your eye out for a wooden 'hoppits grotto' sign (2 ways to enter hoppits)
option 1- right next to the horse farmland near the car park go hard left up the skinny grassy trail, a excess water flow holding pond is on the right of the track.
option 2- enter it off the gravel road opposite Freddie flinstone track
If you have kids with you - make sure to have a look, theres a few nick-nacks and fairy gardens, along with a tree log to walk across and other little things kids can enjoy and be surprised by every turn, you can even hear heaps of frogs at certain times of the year

Exactly as it says on the tin. Short, flat, speedy and a good one for the kids!
