Need to Know

There are sections of the trail that are easier to ride than others with several sections of rural roads where other vehicles and stock and may be encountered grazing the road sides.

You'll need an average level of fitness with above average off road bike skills.

Many trail sections are in wilderness areas with limited cell phone coverage, many activity operators provide emergency location devices for hire, it is recommended that one device is carried with each party.

Be prepared and dress for seasonal weather conditions, don’t forget to check the forecast.
You'll need to plan your trip to include personal supplies, water for a day’s riding and of course food for the duration of your journey. If self supported you'll need to book transport options including the river jet boat. Make sure your have a basic repair kit and can join a broken chain and repair a puncture.
