Looking for a relatively relaxed 40 km ride out of the rain just 30 minutes drive from Yungaburra? Look no further than the Silver Valley Ride which starts just to the west of Herberton and ends at the Wild River west of Ravenshoe. The ride is all on good gravel, is relatively traffic free and travels through a range of open eucalypt country.
There are a few great downhills – with obligatory corresponding uphills, but the road is mostly easy rolling to undulating. There are Aboriginal rock paintings and historic mine features as well as a number of shady spots for picnics and smoko stops next to the Wild River along the way. Click on the photos for an enlargement and a sense of the ride.
