Alexandra and Surrounds
- Trail type: Gravel
- Difficulty: Blue
- Distance: 39 km
A mixed surface loop of gravel and bitumen with a nice climb and great Lake Eildon views on the return leg.
Leaving the bustling township of Alexandra this ride passes close to the Alexandra Timber Tramway & Museum and onto the Great Victorian Rail Trail for a short warm up section. Soon you’ll be onto the winding gravel climb up through bush with the valley floor below getting further and further away. The climb tops out onto Skyline Road and here there is the optional Sonnberg Loop which adds another 25km and 700m of climbing. Skyline Road sits on the ridge and along its length offers awesome views over Lake Eildon and beyond to other mountains in the High Country. Dropping off the ridge for the ride home on sealed roads, pop into one of the many eateries for a well deserved meal or cold beverage.
