Tarilta Gold Circuit

Description:

Tarilta Gold road/track ride map. Start What3Words ///comedian.summers.permitted Ride grade Green (Easy) per tinyurl.com/ride-trail-grades. If riding with non clip-in pedals, then due to ascents, a higher degree of ride fitness and technique is required. This nearly 27.3 km ride suits mtb, e-mtb, gravel bikes and with suitable tyres – hybrids. Some tarmac each end but mainly rural gravel roads, forest dirt roads (one steepish scrabbly section just 200m), with a section of Dry Diggings Track to introduce those who have yet to enjoy the Goldfields Track. Rural roads take us via Tarilta, a bustling gold town from 1850-1880s, now a quiet settlement. Then we earn great views of surrounding hills from Kangaroo Hill before looking down to Vaughan Springs as we turn south. Dropping down onto a very pleasant section of Dry Diggings Track we ride (or walk) some single track along an old water channel. Back onto the high road with glimpses of surrounding ridges until we take a 4WD track to race or cruise down a lovely gully. Drop to Tarilta Creek and while snacking, its geocache Nature Takes its Course for some, while others can head up the lovely creek side track to view The Screams. A bit of a steep climb out to a road wending its way through verdant forest. A stop to admire the private yet public dog park then the last stretch back to Guildford and a late lunch or early arvo coffee at the well known general store.
