An even bigger challenge

For those who want a bigger challenge, the longer climb from Warburton is an absolute classic. Climb the 34km Reefton Spur, and then turn left at Cumberland Junction for a further 7km of rolling through giant trees and ancient rain forests to the Lake Mountain turn off. A further spectacular 10km of easy climbing brings you to the top carpark, and a well-earned visit to the Lake Mountain cafe. An incredible loop can be completed via Marysville and the Acheron Way, if you don't mind a section of good quality gravel road.
