Mountain Biking Shoelace

**   Add a review

Shoelace is a short (less than 1km), intermediate cross-country trail connecting River Road to the Bluff Trail. It joins Bluff below hardest part so intermediate riders should be able to loop back down Bluff to Forest HQ.

    Shoelace gently undulates through the Glenbervie Forest for about 3/4 of a kilometre. It connects River Road to the bottom half of the Bluff trail so it allows a nice intermediate loop based around forest HQ which is at the end of Maruata Road.
