Came to Alice springs specifically to ride this trail. Well maintained scenic trip. Spend some time at Simpons gap and make the effort to get up Cassia hill. Best things done in a while

Relaxing scenic bike riding path. All sealed and with nice view of the bush. Nice picnic area with grills at the gap.
