A challenge for the legs as we break the back of the pass. Experience breathtaking views from the top whilst watching Black Eagles and Forest Buzzards glide on the thermals.

Alternative wagon trail route up Burchells route, a 30km loop in the mountians, awesome ride for the more experienced riders.
