Summary:
scenery is great (and makes a good excuse to stop from time to time to catch breath). wide red dirt track with few rocks and fallen branches, guess it can be very slippery when wet.

Recommended Route:
to enter: ride along Gorge Rd to Castambool, turn right into Batchelor Rd (dirt road). It's mostly up from there. The track markers ubruptly end ut SA Water gate # 13 (about 4 km into the track). There are some new style pinkish markers as well as older blue and white once.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
o'halloran hill park, kuitpo forest, marino/hallet cove

Reviewed by: carlo russo , from adelaide australia

Summary:
granny gear ascent for most of the way passing gates that must be shut, take in the view as you reach each peak.Then you will follow a public dirt road with Mt. Crawford forest on the left where racing is held fang around the track or follow the blue and white markers for a undulating 500km ride through forests, towns and more forests.

Recommended Route:
from adelaide to lobethal 80kms return
following the linear bike path along river torrens
to gorge road then hang a right to mawson trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
fox creek downhill course Mt. Crawford
