    The forested area closer to Springs Junction is one of the prettiest rides you’ll find anywhere. Sure, it doesn’t have vast mountain panoramas but it does have a wonderful forest with little streams every few km.

    The forest road is banked heavily but don’t be tempted to cut corners around the really tight bits; the locals use this road a lot and traffic is common.
    The more open roads at the Murchison end are OK but pretty straight and bloody dusty if there’s traffic. If you’re there in Summer you’re going to have to have a BIG gap between yourself and the next bike to avoid breathing their dust.
