Description

The shortest, least technical and easiest ride of all the Harkerville Trails. A fantastic ride for the whole family! Long winding jeep track roads under the forest canopy. No sea views but loads to look at in the forest! Lots of fantastic picnic spots along the way as well as viewing some giant redwood trees.

This trail is for the whole family to enjoy!
