Notes:

The Grove track, otherwise known as Citadel Cres Reserve, is a nice little suburban single track tucked away in the quiet suburb of Glenhaven .. well except for Linksley Ave which is like Conrod Straight .. watch for cars!

The trail starts in the tress at a grassy corner between Linksley Ave and Timber Grove (a street - not a bunch of trees).  A short sharp descent leads into some rough trail before cruising on toward a large set of boulders.  The path through the boulders is a little technical, but if you hold some momentum and stay up on your pegs you should be fine, ALTERNATIVELY you can ride right over the boulders, I gave it a try on the return leg before pulling out at the last minute - confident that I didn't have enough speed to get up the boulder in the slippery conditions.

From here on the trail is pretty straight forward .. and well .. pretty straight all the way up to the Fullers Road Reserve Bike Path.  

From the orange painted markings along the trail it looks like work is planned to widen the trail in the near future which will take some of the fun out of it.

Parking at the Timber Grove / Linksley Ave end or where the Grove Track meets the Fullers Road Reserve Bike Path at Citadel Cres.

If you ride this trail make sure you extend it by riding the Linksley Reserve Trail

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
