Starting and finishing at the NPWS office – although you can begin at any location in the loop – Loftus loop trail winds around Loftus Oval. Though easy in parts, the 10 kilometre Loftus loop trail is bound to get your heart rate up.
You’ll cover eight kilometres of trail, along with two kilometres of designated bike track. Terrain changes from flat, wide trails to steep, single-track trails that can be a little rocky under your tyres. There are some steep sections around Temptation Creek, so it’s best to walk these if you’re an inexperienced rider. This diverse terrain makes Loftus loop trail one of Royal National Park’s most enjoyable cycling trails.
When you're done cycling your heart out, stop off at Weir Café for a bite to eat, or unroll a blanket for a picnic lunch at Ironbark Flat picnic area.
