Brass Monkeys @ Hill End: 14 – 15 Jul 18

Meet at the Caltex Service Station at Mount Victoria (Cnr Mount York Road & Great Western Highway) at 9:45 for 10:00 departure.

Riding to Hill End via Black Fellows Hands, Turon Gates, Sofala. A highlight will be Trig Stations of the Central West. Always a good view from a Trig. Return via Bridle Track, Sunny Corner, Hampton. Fuel at Mt Vic, Capertee, Yetholme (every 150km).

Accommodation at Royal Hotel at Hill End – 02 6337 8261. $60 per person including a la carte dinner and continental breakfast. Book your own accommodation ASAP – it will help guarantee availability.

It will be cool / cold, so bring warm gear.

I rode the tracks recently and they’re in good condition, suitable for bigger bikes.

Here are three files:

  1. A gpx file of the route.  Load this into your GPS unit using Garmin Basecamp (if you have a Garmin).
  2. A kml file of the route. You can use this to look at the route in Google Earth (with imagery) – it makes more sense than Basecamp.
  3. The nswglobe.kml file offers better (or different) imagery while you use Google Earth.  Save it somewhere convenient and open it whenever you want better imagery in Google Earth (for NSW only).
