Completed on 24/11/2019 with a friend. The trail is well sign posted, and relatively easy to follow; having the GPS route is anyway recommended as a further helpful reference. No doubts completing the trail in one day requires a medium level of fitness at least; the length (around 70-75km due to the Munda Biddi re-route) and the always changing surface make the ride challenging at times. Not a single soul met along the way; clearly not a very popular route given the length. Plenty of wildlife, many kangaroos and a couple of snakes as well. Recommended to anyone looking at a one-day medium to high intensity adventure wink

Rode this in Sept 2019. Wildflowers are beautiful but the Waterous signs stopped at Nanga Rd when it heads you south again and you cross a small water crossing. The mining company have started to mine in the area and the Munda Biddi has been re-routed (which is sign posted well). After the little water crossing iI didn't see another Waterous sign in the next 8 kms before realising that it looks like they forgot to re-route the Waterous trail around the new mining pits where the Waterous used to go. So had to do some improvisiation. ensded u[ 72kms but they are also looking at more pits so route for Waterous may change again

I rode this Trail in Aug 2015. It is a lot more challenging than this website would have you believe! It would be a most adventurous family that would attempt this 'Family Friendly' trail! I would not recommend it for any children under the age of 15yo. The trail is a mixture of overgrown single track, fire trail, formed trail, unsealed road and sealed road. There are a number of diversions in place and it measured about 66kms when we rode it (we did it all in one day). It is also quite hilly (we made about 900m of ascent over the course of the trail). It is very well marked, and there are some very pleasant parts through the bush, but it is not something to be undertaken lightly!
