Blue Tier

An adventure trail like no other!  Starting high up  on the Blue Tier in sub-alpine terrain you are instantly treated to endless vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges and stunning coast line.  Before you know it you’ll be ducking through majestic myrtle trees and whizzing by huge tree ferns.  Giant Ash trees will tower over you before you drop in to an eye watering descent shaped in to perfect dirt.  A traverse along a forestry road allows you to gather your thoughts before you are taken in to a totally new style of environment.  The wide open and untouched terrain after Ansons Bay Rd is a stark contrast to where this journey began.  It’s hard to keep your eyes on the trail as you contour and climb through monolith granite boulders and suddenly catch glimpses of the world renowned Bay of Fires.  The final descent darts across endless ridge lines before delivering you to the pure white sands of Swimcart beach.
