10km Staindale running route at Dalby Forest

Scenic views on our longest running route

This is a very scenic running loop sets off from the peaceful Staindale Lake via Crosscliff Viewpoint. It takes in Yondhead Rigg, Crosscliff and elements of the Jerry Noddle trail leading to some spectacular views to the north over Langdale Forest.

This is mostly on forest roads but interspersed with single tracks, grass rides and some interesting feature paths. With only 120m elevation change and a trail length close to 10km, this route gives one of the greatest running experiences the forest has to offer!
