Lovely ride through the valley on our Harley Davidson. Stunning views even if the dams weren’t flowing due to low water levels. Interesting visitors centre fee parking for bikes.

A few days ago my partner and I travelled here for a random day out and it was a pleasant surprise. There are many great things to see, lovely countryside and many great areas to walk. Definitely would recommend.
