This is one of three loops
in the Manchester Forest that wind through a mixture of forest, open, area, and some wetland.
You will be guided by arrows, which indicate turns and direction of
travel. Although basically a lowland area, there are enough small
hills to make your ride exciting. The trail surface is a mixture of
dirt and sand and if overused, the trail may be closed to allow for
recovery. Also, during wet weather there may soft spots and standing
water, which may
require the trail to be closed for maintenance and repairs,
so please wait for drier conditions
to avoid damage
