Upper Loop Blue

Grade: Blue (Moderate) Blue (Moderate)
Distance:8.00 km
Ascent:200 m

From the Buzzards Nest the route follows a forest road gently downhill then joins a singletrack climb shared with the Red Route, with some tight hairpin turns. A further switchback climb follows, with even tighter turns and some steep pitches which will test your strength. From here the route follows a forest road climb further up into the forest.

Here you have the option to cut out the highest part of the route by taking the Blue Return Trail back towards the Buzzards Nest. Carry on though, and after a while you’ll reach the end of the forest road - and the Meteorite stane.
