It's a fine mountain bike park partly set in a pine forest. Unfortunately, those trees were being harvested when I was there so I only got to ride the eastern side of the park. ---
I rode up Tantragee Road to the Pipeline track then went up Jack's Track, followed by the Summit-Fireball Link to the Fireball skid. All that to gain 200 odd metres of altitude! But then the fun started with a thrilling ride down Firball (yes, Firball, not Fireball). Then I went back up to the Fireball Skid and rode down IV Line (pronounced eye-vee-line). It's another good trail, narrow, windy and tight. From there I should have picked up the Dun Mountain Trail back to the car park but didn't know any better and rode down the road. ---
Hopefully someone else will review the rest of the park when it's all back in business! If it's as good as the part I sampled then it's going to be a fairly extensive network with lots of fun trails...
