Description

This is one a few roads in the Forest MTB Park suitable for beginners, children and family groups. IMHO Alligator Alley is best ridden from Jacks Pass down. Turn south into the Forest at the Water Tank opposite the toilets/visitor centre. The upper section is wide and fast. Cross over Mansfield Road (forest track) near the picnic area to enjoy the narrow southern section which takes you down to Perserverance. There are a collection of tracks and roads in this area that are fun to explore, and even for the more wild rider to wind down on, on the way back into town.

Getting there

There are several ways into the forest park. You can head down Jollies pass road and over the bridge to find an entrance on the right just after the bridge. Head for the Dog Stream Reserve by taking any of the tracks off Scarborough Terrace or go to Bath- Ist left as you leave town to park and ride.
