We will start riders from Station Street which is adjacent to the Forrest Caravan Park. Riders will then head south, before turning left into Henigan Cresent, head up towards Yaugher road, left onto Yaugher road and continue along to the Forrest Football Ground.

From here you will follow the new Forrest Tiger Rail Trail all the way until you reach Forrest - Birregurra road, where a managed traffic crossing will await you. Heading north now, you will dive into the Yaugher trail network and begin what will be approximately 30+ kilometers of singletrack, intersected with some fireroad and dirt road sections.

Once you have completed the "big loop" of Yaugher, you will find yourself back where you started and then following the Tiger Rail Trail back towards town.

The Town rail trail, will serve as the long wide straight finish chute, before you turn left into Station street with the finish of the Forrest Festival right in town in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans! Ok, well at least a few locals will be there.

Once you have finished there will again be food on offer before the presentations and awards ceremony begins at approximately 3pm, in time for you to get back home, or for those staying another night, just enough time to rest before you "kick on".
