The Trip

This full day trip is named for the fact that it starts and finishes at Hartley's' Creek Crocodile Farm. The last 100 meters of the trail looks into the back of the farm, and you will spot some huge crocs in their breeding enclosures.

We have been on this trail several times with Dan, and really enjoy it. The first part of the ride is a paved rural road, a long and steady climb, steep enough to be a workout, but very scenic, as long as you turn around and look back at the beaches and ocean. After a mile or so, a turnoff onto a single track trail is taken, and the trail weaves it's way though the forest.

The morning stop is a beautiful small waterfall and swimming hole, and later on there is another stop at a natural waterslide. The trail is largely downhill, with a few technical spots. Dan rates this trip as Grade 4; single track with some steep hills, with perhaps 1 in 20 guests taking a fall on their ride.

The Company

This locally owned company is the product of the imagination and energy of it's owner and operator Dan Foley. We have known Dan for over 10 years, mostly due to our common interest in mountain bike touring. Dan leads a very upbeat trip, and we still marvel at the way his charm can encourage people to try and succeed at riding trails that they think are too difficult.

Dan runs a variety of mountain bike trips, of varying difficulty, and through all kinds of terrain. The equipment he uses is basic durable stuff. The bikes are steel framed bikes with front suspension, perfect for his operation. Racers may find the equipment a little less fancy then their sleek bikes back at home, but will still feel challenged by the riding. Group size is 10 or under, ably guided by Dan and his trusty offsider Damon.

Dan feels that his trips are appropriate for anyone who is active in sport or exercise 3 times per week, and asks that participants be in good health and able to ride a bicycle. The minimum age for these trips is 12 years.
