Review:
The FTF is pretty good for a variety of ages and technical skills.
 
A more challenging ride can be done from FTF; ride across 'gulch' bridge or gully (2 options) then through top gate, tunnel under highway and follow old highway track north, gate onto a super steep hill, ride up Blacklands / Thunderbolts Road (rocky, rarely a car) to top, turn left down RTA track which turns into 'Robbers Run' MTB track.
 
Ride at own risk, fun track with some quite technical bits. It comes out at the top of the steep hill back down to FTF --- it's a good hour long ride (about 15km rtn FF) for the fit folks.
