This trail offers challenging, mixed riding through stunning scenery of mountain peaks, crystal clear waters, high country lakes, alpine meadows, subalpine beech forest, and expansive grassy flats.


In spring the alpine meadows are in full bloom while summers offers long evenings and the chance to see the famous St James wild horses.
