We did part of this trail between Roxburgh and towards Millers Flat. A very good surface and gentle ups and downs as it follos beside the Clutha river. The part we did was totally off road.

Stunning time riding the Clutha trail. We added this onto the Roxburgh trail. Stunning scenery from Lake Roxburgh to Millers Flat. Ride to Lawrence was good but not a repeat ride like the rest of Trail. Def worth doing.
