Abandoned Rose Farm Loop

Relive the glory years of the rose boom with this easy / moderate trail that winds its way through the LH Forest Reserve and round the back of State Lodge via an abandoned flower farm complex. Some easy trails, the odd stream and gate and a couple of decent hills make this a varied but enjoyable challenge with less climbing that the routes that drop off the escarpment down the Chifwema Road. Terrain is mixed single track, jeep track, dirt road and farm tracks with a short spell along the powerlines.
