This is a nice and short route starting from the gym that winds through the Leopard’s Hill Forest Reserve in a nice single track loop. Nothing too technical though there are a couple of steep climbs on gravel that will need the granny gear! There are masses of trails branching off at all times so ample opportunity to extend and explore! Could be a decent run or walk if that’s what floats your boat.
