Easy 23 kilometer Loop ride from Dungog to Fosterton and return. About 210m of undulating climbing and it includes a great rest spot about halfway on the Williams river at Newells Crossing. This is also a fantastic spot for a quick dip on a hot day. Grade – Easy. Includes 3k unsealed road.
Don’t worry about the dogs in the river, they are mine and it’s very unlikely they’ll be there.
