Distance 23km • Rise 1,119m • Grade Average 5% • Grade Max 11%

Arguably the steadiest climb and very consistent gradient. Terrific vistas and one of the best descents of the 7 Peaks.

The ever-popular ride is a balance of steep gradients, sharp corners and breathtaking views. The Mount Buffalo National Park landscape is truly unique with imposing granite tors, towering cliffs, waterfalls, snowgums and wildflowers. The 31,000 hectare park contains the iconic Mount Buffalo Chalet. The spectacular gorge is a must see and a cool off in Lake Catani is bliss before continuing up to the official finish line at Dingo Dell.
