Back country ride through Alpine snow areas. Follows old, reclaimed, deteriorated fire trail. Some long steady climbs that reward with fantastic 360 degree views and old mountain huts, followed by some great rocky descents. Take spares and food, some natural fresh flowing water sources that can be consumed at your discretion.

Access Info

Via Falls Creek and Pretty Valley Dam.
