“The Doctor follows a historical old reservoir trail until it reaches a new piece of singletrack which makes its way up.”— Martin McCrudden
Family Friendly Making its way past the historic reservoir and regenerating native bush is a cool experience.
The Doctor weaves its way through regenerating native forest thanks to an effort with the funds from the Outdoor Recreation Consortium, which helped Mana Cycle Group to fell wilding pines for DoC and replace the damaged walking trail with a suitable multi-use trail that is now The Doctor.
