On your bike
This 4km by 7km reserve allows mountain biking along a network of gravel roads and animal tracks, with enough variation in terrain to make for a challenging crank through a unique wilderness landscape.
Crank along high cliff faces; blast downhill amidst boulders, bomb the open grassland plains or just meander gently along on tranquil woodland tracks ... Stop and clamber down Hamasha gorge for a stunning swim in one of the rock pools framed by high cliffs, and chill out within this spectacular amphitheatre before cycling back out.
