Dewings Bridge Rd Loop

This loop heads north of Forrest to Barwon Downs and beyond. This loop takes you out into green rolling hills and is a great loop for those seeking less vert. There is one short section on bitumen between the end of the Tiger Rail Trail and Barwon Downs so be mindful of cars on this section.

Stats

The route is 26km long and has 320 vert metres.

Course Terrain

Gentle hills and well maintained gravel roads are the staple of this course.
