Estimated Times to Run







Signposted as a 21km Mountain Bike loop.

From the mountain bike park entrance, enter the forest. The route initially climbs a bit. There are four 'peaks' in the run but they are relatively small, the run is undulating throughout and there are lots of twists and turns. If you have the route loaded on your watch it will be more straightforward to follow.

Beautiful forest, very peaceful, No big vistas, but nice flowing forest trails.

Plenty of parking at the sports ground. Dogs allowed on leash.

Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

No water access.

The trails seem to drain reasonably well. Trail shoes recommended for grip. There may occasionally be a fallen tree to climb over.

There's nothing at the mountain bike part itself so recommend bringing a hot flask and something yummy for afterwards.

Trail Reviews

Coincidentally (?) happens to be the same course as the Cougar Half Marathon course. That being said it is a really awesome run.
