It takes you on a scenic route across the farm, with quite a few unique cycling obstacles and challenges. The trails meander through our working farm with bits of forest, dams and even some old ruins to explore. Our trails are all very well marked and beautifully maintained. Don’t forget to take along a bottle of water, sunscreen and a hat! We have a selection of mountain bikes for toddlers to adults available for rent; rentals include a helmet. Maps are sold separately.
