Top looks kinda ok. Bear in mind the contour lines are 100m vert.

That’s pretty much my recollection too :lol:

I will likely be riding at 6am, so it will be steep and gravelly - but hopefully not too hot...

Turns out it’s about 6k of relatively steep (and really thick in places) gravel road bashing before the start of the track proper.

Such a great ride, that descent is just so flowy. Feels like minutes at a time playing speeder bikes through the trees with no pedalling :thumbsup:

Didn't see the post until now, but vehicle access is possible via the Northbank Rd side

Ha!
I wondered about that after the fact - does the road go right through to Bartlett’s Creek?
