G08 Halls Gap Victoria Valley *** Alternate route TBA ***
The route starts as a gradual climb along the Grampian National Park Road past the lake. There’s a rest area at 34 km. Just after this we turn right and climb for 3 km 250 metre to a wonderful view of the valley. Then we ride down into the Victoria Valley. This is more open country. On the return leg the climb back over the range is a little more challenging with a 4km 300 meter climb back. The gradients appear to be less than 5%.
