Several kilometres of purpose-built singletrack weaves through the forest here; some flat and some quite hilly.
Nemo is a great trail on the flat for kids and beginners.
Access most of the other trails by going up Zip and Zip Bypass. There are several nice intermediate trails to come back down on. Elberro is fun, Switchback and Switches are more technical. Magpies, Pond, Wahoo and so on are all worth a run.
