Start with a climb up the first section of our Green Loop "Shack track" followed by a long steady climb up "Highway to Hill" which uses sections of old Mining race, Once you reach the top, have a breather then get set for fantastic 7km descent down Blackwood Boulevard and Digger's Decline before returning to base with a traverse along "Minty Badger" which follows another old Mining Race.
