    Stunning

    Beautiful peaceful trail. Saw one other person all day. Corners can be quite tight and there are pesky spear grasses around, but overall a fantastic scenic ride

    Something different!

    We'd heard about this trail from friends and so didn't really know what was in store for us. We lucked out with the weather and the trail provided some great views. There were some fun downhill sections, although not nearly enough for us really. Definitely nice and scenic and we didn't see anyone else whilst on the trail which was great. The reason we would only give it 3 stars is because the last section of the trail was a bit flat and boring but worse that that, there's a 5km section of road at the end that was pretty much just uphill and very boring for us.
