THE TRACK

All the legs are good under foot. With a variety of surfaces, fantastic views, farmland, rainforest etc.

The 40km leg follows the river for a while then turns up some less used dirt roads through lovely bush and some rainforest. Still clean good tracks. Again clean fresh water creeks with easy access. There is approximately 25km of track with slight undulation no higher than 50mtr above sea level. This leaves 6km of undulating through rainforest then a 4km gradual climb to an elevation of around 150mtr above sea level. Then a gentle 5.7km back down to the river. No tar road apart from a very short distance entering a couple of the creek crossings.

 

The 40km ride (second leg 80km) winds along the banks of the beautiful Clyde River. Riding along The River Rd all the way to Shallow Crossing and then back. This has slight undulation less than 50mtr above sea level. Tracks are dirt road, with fresh water creeks with easy access.

 

The 20km social ride will follow the Clyde River before turning up a bush track looping around and back onto the road further along the Clyde River.

 

The 10km ride follows The River Rd for half a km before turning up quiet bush tracks where you'll meet no other horses or vehicles. Approximately 6km onto your ride you follow the Clyde River along The River Rd back to base

 

RIDE BASE INFORMATION
We have a fantastic ride base 40metres off the Kings Highway, turn onto the River Road (Shallow Crossing Rd) at the outskirts of Nelligen.

 

There is a large flat paddock a farmer has kindly given us permission to use.

Very easy to get to. Nelligen is 2 ¼ hours from Yass, 1 ½ hours from Canberra and Goulburn, towards the South Coast off the main road from Canberra to Bateman's Bay. Great food onsite.

 

Only one kilometre away there's a good pub with meals, across the road is a holiday park. Also at Nelligen is a great cafe overlooking the lovely Clyde River and a park with childrens playground. The holiday park is four star with showers or for camping, cabins and villas (with spa's) on the banks of the Clyde River.
