Altitude Profile (250 ft to 2,902 ft)
Kennet Brothers Book grades this as a 3+, but its a knotty tough bugger... definitely not one for the kids, despite the local tourism push for this to be one of the 101 "must dos" - I would grade the track through the forest as an occasional Grade 4, or frequent get-off for less experienced riders, "difficult to get flow" on.
First 10.5 kms is on gravel road to the Harwood hole Carpark
Grassy track climb to 12kms, where you take a dive into the forest path. Lovely scenery, but a knotty track, with some horrible surfacing and dropoff to the left. stream crossings are tough obstacles, and there are some fun tree roots to argue with.
A greasy steep decent at 16kms is not for the faint-at-heart, and theres some bike-carrying track for 100m at around 17km.
from 18km its a metalled gravel road downhill brake-burner, with sheep to dodge... sounds fun? - a bit, but flowing hard pack single / double track it aint.
