Hi All,

Been out riding Tableland road and saw this 30km offshoot near the end: Erskin ridge FT, goes all the way to Warragamba. Would love to see the elevation profile. I'm guessing - especially with all that corrugation on Tableland - it'd be a pretty huge day of approx 90km...

Anyway, just thinking..., if you have a gpx, pls share!

Thanks a bunch!

... it goes into the Warragamba Catchment Area and is not legal to ride past that point. I did it about 45 years ago on a motorbike, but life was a bit simpler then.....

Thanks Lach, would be interested to see the elevation profile regardless then see how far one can go...
Bit ironic though that it's illegal to ride it, but it's ok for miners to crap the Cox's which is a primary source of water into the dam - doh

You can create a route on Strava to check out the profile. It's not a hard ride at all with the only real climbing going down at Erskine creek, very well maintained trail. Apparently:-)

Yes I ended up doing just that, thanks for the idea Smiling
