This 194 km ride starts in the Clarence River valley and travels south-west up the Great Dividing Range to the New England Tableland. It is sealed all the way, except for the odd short sections being resealed from time to time. There are some bumpy sections, mainly at the Grafton end, and a variety of straights, bends and some twisty sections. The route heads out through Coutes Crossing before crossing the Nymboida River (a popular location for kayaking and canoeing). About 45 km into the run, the road rises through the twisties into the state forest. Look out for the odd logging truck. After passing two turn-offs to Dorrigo, this route becomes the Waterfall Way as it sweeps through the hilltops and usually lush forest and green paddocks. At about 118 km you reach the small town of Ebor where there is standard fuel (open only during business hours). The turnoff to Ebor Falls is just through town and the falls themselves only a few hundred metres from the main road. Another 39 km to the Wollomombi Falls turnoff - worth a look (about 1 km along a partially sealed, partially good dirt surface to the carpark area, then a very short walk). A final 38 km run through some nice sweepers with elevation changes gets you into Armidale.
