Notes:

The Perimeter Trail is a great fire trail ride that runs from Terry Hills to Duffys Forest ending at the intersection of the Cullamine Track and the Long Track.

This section is the first section from the trail head at Nerang Street, Terrey Hills until the intersection of the Durumbil Ave entrance at the top of a long steep hill.

While the trail head is from Nerang Street there are a number of places you can enter the trail.  Iíve found the section between Nerang Ave and the Booralie Rd entrance is particularly wet, with a large number of eternal puddles and muddy sections.  In future I will probably ride this trail from Booralie Rd, as I donít think you miss much (except for the puddles).

This section of the trail is typical undulating fire trail with sections of dirt, rocky descents/climbs, and a one steep and long climb at the end that Iíve yet to climb.  The ride back however is heaps of fun and a chance to open up.  Itís the biggest and longest hill on the whole Perimeter Trail.

Overall this is a great fire trail and perfect for beginners.  Link it up with the second section of the Perimeter Trail and  a run out to the end of the Long Track and you have a 24km return ride with some nice hills to help build your fitness.

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.
