The 96 km trails range from the moderate 6 km Greenwood loop to the demanding Castlepook loop which is over 50 km in length. The trails can be quite exposed on certain upper slopes and may be very gusty in unfavourable weather so it is advisable to be dressed appropriately.

A wide range of visitor services are provided at the trail head such as car parking, bike wash, showers and toilets.
