About
Cycle the unsealed but gentle gradient 53km trail from Ballarat to Skipton. Meander through the wide open grasslands, eucalypt forests, historic bridges and quaint 19th century villages of Smythesdale, Scarsdale, Linton and Skipton. There are plenty of great places to stop along the way to bird watch and take in the flora and fauna. The Clarkesdale Bird Sanctuary will offer sightings of scarlet robins, eastern and crimson rosellas and above the treetops you may spot wedge tailed eagles and kites. Take along a picnic to enjoy at one of the many shelters along the way or enjoy a meal at the cafes and pubs on the route.

Awesome E-Bike adventure
Feb 2020 • Friends
Thanks Gayle for taking us and showing us the best trails and beautiful forest scenery in Ballarat area. The bikes are top quality and easy to ride. We had plenty of photo opportunities and nice coffee stops. We were spoilt by your hospitality and your passion for cycling is inspiring. Definitely recommend! 5 Stars!!
Cheers, Steve & Scott.
