Definitely not for the faint hearted, some very steep climbs and some good down hill biking.

A solid ride with heaps of hills and good views in the middle of nowhere. We rode this in May when the daylight hours were pretty short and didn't leave much room for error. The track is great when its dry as the clay on the downhills can be lethal when they are wet. The track is fully ridable apart from one river crossing with a steep uphill straight after it - you definately know when you are here. The last hill is quite relentless. Be aware of the quads driving thorugh.
