Description

This short connecting track is a natural progression off the end of Ridgeline Extension. The surface is firm, with just enough bumps to make it interesting, while the surrounding bush is pleasant.

After cruising along this gentle track, there are several options including:

continue down Swigg & Starfish to the main car park.

take Lazy Fern down to the main car park.

head back into the depths of the park via Sally Alley.

cruise on down to the Skills Area via Tower 19 Connector or Magic Carpet.

Be careful crossing Snake Charmer as you enter the start of this track – there can be vehicle traffic heading up/down the road.
