Rode as a loop from Murchison, and back on the SH, 2hrs round trip. Very nice run, with the saddle road being the more interesting. Surface was quite loose and sandy in a few places, but stream crossings firm. Saddle point itself is harder to discern coming from the east, as one seems to go up and down for a bit before dropping to the western side. Sign on a tree helpfully marks the point.
