Notes:

The final section of the Oaks trail from the end of the single track to Glenbrook Station is a mix of sealed road and cycle paths.  But if that sounds easy THINK AGAIN.

The section starts with a steep and tight descent (including a hairpin) down to the causeway.  

Note: After rain the causeway can be impassible.  Check the status with the NPWS before you start your Oaks ride or it will be a VERY VERY long ride home.

After crossing the causeway there is a long and steep climb up to the NPWS gates.  It will be granny gears all the way to the top, especially if you went hard for the rest of the trail.  Thankfully there are a number of rest sections on the corners to help you along.

After exiting the National Park continue along the road until the right hand bend then take the shared footpath.  A few more small climbs to go before you pop up back at Glenbrook Station.

NEED TO COOL OFF: there is a track out to the swimming holes part of the way up the hill.  More info on all the things surrounding this trail can be found at the Fat Hippy.

FOOD AND DRINK: On arrival in Glenbrook there are plenty of cafes, bakeries and fast food joints to replenish your energy reserves and if you can't find a table there is a park and picnic area at the top end of the shops (towards the highway)

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.
