Ride your way up to Watts Rock, with a short side trip to a historic Water Wheel. It's a slow grind to the top, but you'll be rewarded with an amazing view. On a clear day, you'll see The Remarkables, Lake Dunstan, and Nevis Valley.
You can park at Bannockburn. Start your ride to Schoolhouse Road, then on to Quartzville Road. You'll see a signpost to Carricktown. Follow the track all the way to Watts Rock. You can either ride back the same way, or make a loop back through Nevis Road to Bannockburn.
Always plan ahead and prepare for changes in weather. Dispose of waste properly. Respect wildlife and farm animals. Be considerate of other trail users.
