Welcome Rock Trail

The Roaring Lion Trail is a 27km high country loop following historic water races dating back to the gold mining era.

This trail celebrates the Chinese water race builders, who 110 years ago built the meandering bermed profile that follows the folds of the landscape. Today half the hand crafted trail is on this flat race with the remaining on gentle gradients.

As natural trail our design philosophy is to have a low impact on the landscape for visitors to interact and pass through. A story unfolds as you travel along, enriched with a tale about the gold mining era and ecology of the land.

Allow 5hrs riding time, including lunch and photo stops, and finish the day with a well earned beer at the Garston Hotel.

$120pp including return transport and trail fees.
