The ride will take you deep into the Beechworth Gorge where you will witness how Reedy Creek has carved its way through the honey granite, creating spectacular pools which the locals use to cool off during the hot summer months, before descending down through farmland to the Woolshed Falls.

You can complete the Watershed ride comfortably in three hours (including stops) however you may want to linger a little longer at any of the points of interest along the way and make a day of it.
