Terrey Hills / Duffys Forest

All firetrail out and back from Nerang Ave. This is suggested for beginners, but has a few steeper sections (downhill) to start so that's uphill to finish you off.

The Perimeter firetrail is one of the most popular trails on the Northern Beaches. This route is one of the easier options for beginners to explore.

Start at the East end of the trail, which is at the end of Nerang Avenue, Terrey Hills. Many people will also choose to park at the shops on Booralie Road (corner with Yulong Ave) and ride past the playing fields to the trailhead:

Perimeter Start

Once on the trail the first 1-1.5km has a few 'undulations'. These are mostly downhill on the way out. For a novice rider yet to build up fitness this section can be a challenge to finish off - be sure to pick an easy gear here!

There are several junctions off the Perimeter trail, but when faced with one with another fire trail choose to carry on in the straightest direction to stay on Perimeter.

There are distance markers along this trail every kilometer. Kilometer zero is at the East end (where this profile starts).

On reaching the West end of the trail simply turn round and head on back to the start.

For those not wishing to do the full out and back just turn around sooner. Or arrange a vehicle at the other end to return to the start via the road (no driving on this fire trail of course).
