RIDE 24 – WELCOME TO NEW ZEALAND
Wombat State Forest
OK to ride
Some map changes to note.
If riding with non clip-in pedals, then a few ascents require a higher degree of ride fitness and technique.
This remains Ken’s favourite circuit being quiet, verdant, interesting and variety of track.
[1.2] below refers to a white on green labelled km symbol on the map.
[1.3] to [2.5] has a few trees across which are easily bypassed.
In the NE part, between [5.8] and the northernmost Feature 2, there are a number of new well defined tracks to the NE. These were created during extraction of a pine plantation where you can now see open land.
The track junction just N of [9.1] should be cross tracks as a well defined track heads E at that point. Ken’s error <:-[
At [9.1], the 400m of faint track is now clearly defined.
At [11.1] the short section of track becomes faint – continue SA to the main track.
From [11.1] until the road take great care on the short downhills as there are many scoured deep holes which are difficult to see when riding down. These do occur on some other clay track sections.
CENTRAL HIGHLANDS WALK & RIDE CIRCUITS GUIDE AVAILABLE
The new Central Victorian Highlands Walk and Ride Circuits guide is supported by full colour, large scale contour maps alongside detailed accompanying track notes, similar in style to our award-winning Goldfields Track guide. Featuring 20 walks and 10 bike rides within the Daylesford region, they explore new territory beyond the confines of the Goldfields and Lerderderg tracks. Each is short enough that you won’t need all day to complete a circuit.
