Cycled this with a girlfriend (we are in our 50's). We were both on comfortable commuter cycles from Trail Journeys who organised this and the Clutha Gold trail to follow. WOW - Ive done quite a few cycle trails but the Roxburgh Gorge one is...More
This trail has been well-constructed and is maintained to a very high standard. One hopes that if the trail is connected, it does not become too commercialised. The jet boat transfer gave us the opportunity to view some of the remaining miners' huts and one...More
Completed the trail as a family of four. Great weather. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Trail suitable for all levels of rider. Views wonderful. SheBikesHeBikes planned our itinerary, arranged the boat, dropped out bags at our accommodation and generally made life very easy for us. Thanks Carol...More

This is a great ride with spectacular scenery. Jet boat ride between Doctors point and Shingle creek was informative and fun. Section towards the dam is steep in places but not too bad if reasonably fit. A bit difficult for my novice kids but they...More
Our experience was also calm with great commentary. It is not a thrill seeking ride. The boat driver also helps getting your bike off and on and securing it to the boat. I think you should be fine, but if in doubt it would... More
Our experience was also calm with great commentary. It is not a thrill seeking ride. The boat driver also helps getting your bike off and on and securing it to the boat. I think you should be fine, but if in doubt it would not hurt to mention your concerns. Enjoy!
