An easy ride on mainly dirt roads checking out some of the spectacular lookouts in Morton National Park.
Ride down Church St turning right after 80 metres into Gullies Rd (continuing straight leads down the very steep Constitution Hill). This dirt road descends to a T-junction at the base of Constitution Hill. Turn right and follow the road into Morton NP at Gambells Rest Camp/Picnic Area (toilets/water). The ride now follows single lane dirt roads in
a loop around the park – watch out for lyrebirds and wallabies. 1.2 km after entering the park you come to an intersection. Riding left (signed Grand Canyon/Fairy Bower) continues the loop back to the park entrance (2kms), riding straight ahead offers a very worthwhile return trip (6.5kms) to take in Bonnie View lookout (a 2km loop) and then on to Echo Point with its wonderful lookout overhanging the cliffs.
Ride back to the intersection and turn right to continue past Grand Canyon and Sunrise lookouts. Soon you’ll have completed the loop back to Gambells Rest. Head out of the parka and back the way you came. The brave and the fit will accept the challenge of climbing Constitution Hill; most will turn left to climb back up the easier angled Gullies Road.
