Make sure to have the MTB Project mobile app to help find your locations if you happen to get lost. Also, make sure to check out HAFTA's website and get the membership - it's the main way they're able to keep these trails in such great shape!
From the trailhead, there are 2 ways to start and both will eventually link up. If you head towards the north side of the parking, you'll find some singletrack to get started on (my recommendation). You'll know you're going the right way when you start a quick little climb up some singletrack.
At the first option, stay left on Fence Line Trail and you'll meet up with the Boundary Trail. There is another junction, stay left again and enjoy Whale Bone! You are going to continue on BT and, after a nice little rocky section, you have the option to ride Rock Wall or skip it - I recommend testing your skills on this great feature. After Rock Wall, you'll want to turn left and ride Zanadu, which will eventually lead back to BT. Go left on Boundary Trail and continue on until you reach the access trail.
Almost immediately after you hit the access road, hang a left on Bat Boxes. There's an option on BB to go left or right - left is more difficult, but both are rideable and fun. At the next junction turn right and after the bridge, look to the left and hop back on some singletrack for a nice little rocky/flowy section called I Will Allow It. When you meet back up with the main road, follow this for a couple of kilometers. It's not all wide and boring. There are some interesting sections along here as well. You'll eventually come to a spot where 4 trails meet, take the one to the left. Follow this for a while until you come back out to the logging road.
Here you stay right and follow this road for about 1 km. Just as the logging road veers to the left, you'll see a trail to the right - definitely take this. After a section of two small bridges and a rock bridge, keep left at the split or depending on your time, you can head back at this point (keep right instead of left) or you can head up the logging road towards 6th Line and meet up with Chain Reaction.
The biggest challenge of this system is NOT doing one more section. It is a fabulous place to waste a day getting lost.
