The green loop is a fantastic practice loop for the young or newbie mountain biker. Itís a fair dinkum trail with plenty of features found on more advanced trails (just on a smaller scale).
The trail starts at the intersection of the Fire Trail and the end of the Blue Descent. The first section has a short easy climb and a few casual bends before turning and running over a ladder bridge, from here the trail runs parallel to the Blue Descent and mimics the Turkey Royal with some small rollers, bends and dips before crossing over a rock garden and heading back to the start.
Itís a brilliant kids / beginners area and with the exception of one small treed section the circuit is visible from the trail head.
To access this trail either descend the Fire Trail or Blue Descent (both of these descents are steep so take it easy or maybe walk if you are heading straight to the beginners area).
