Embrace your sense of adventure on the expert and remote Merrijig - Two Rivers Loop, riding over a mountain pass to connect to the stunning Delatite and Howqua Rivers valleys.

This is the most challenging route in the Mansfield area. It connects the Delatite and Howqua River valleys via a long, technical climb over loose surfaces (some roads shared with 4WDs). It's a true gravel adventure marked by lengthy, arduous climbs and equally long descents on 4WD tracks with extremely variable surfaces, demanding a riders' full attention. Expert riders will be rewarded with dramatic vegetation changes, three river crossings, and breathtaking views of Timbertop and the Great Dividing Range.
