The Northern Loop is a single trail and fire trail combo that runs from the Northern Descent and loops right back around.

From the rock bridge at the end of the Northern Descent there is a single track slight incline before meeting up with a wider fire trail coming up from the Water Treatment Plant.

The fire trail ends at the road, but there is a single trail off to the right that quickly takes you back up to the grass strip between the houses and the bush.

Whilst travelling along this grass strip it drops down into a gully that has a short steep challenge on both sides.

You can either climb this gully and ride the grass back to the top of the  Water Treatment Plan Descent / Northern Descent or follow the gully back to where it meets the start of the loop near the stone bridge (as I have done in the video).

The gully drop is short and steep, for a small technical challenge (see video).


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.
