" XC riding at it’s best! This ride will demand your best riding skills and full attention as you navigate the technical terrain up and down steep hills. Definitely a Type 2 Fun kind of ride with a great sense of accomplishment at the end. "

STAGE 3 - MOUNTAIN BIKE: Gorrell Trail

Inland from the immaculate paradise of Mission Beach lies the Gorrell Track. It’s an old road, forced through the jungle long ago, part of an effort to connect the tablelands to the coast, passing through some of the most densely vegetated slopes imaginable. It’s proper rainforest out there, the air is thick with moisture, soaked with adventure! While the whole trail is fire road, this is not a groomed ride, and the surface beneath you ranges from slippery clay to lumpy bits of black volcanic rock, with technical sections to conquer. The climbs are long, but the descents feel longer (and fast too), as the track plunges from valley to valley, with river crossings galore in between. Memorable from start to finish.
