DISTANCES & ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS: Beautiful singletrack trails that climbs to the ridge with stunning views of the sunset and back down to Muratie through the forest and more hand-built singletrack. Walkers welcome. Kids welcome.

5km – Short route runners will follow the same markers as the long distance to the ridge and central point at Gilloolys with a great view where you will find a water point. Head down the HoChiMihn singletrack forest and hope you make it back to Muratie…
10km – An extra loop after the refreshment station about half-way at Gillooly’s. More forest singletrack = more time to be spooked…

Be aware of unseen Halloween visitors, as legend has it that there are zombies in the forest.  REMEMBER: Yield for ghosts
