A sunset ride on Stockdill Drive is one of the best things you can do. The road suddenly ends, which discourages traffic. Apart from a farm or two, nobody lives there. You will pass the Woodstock Nature Reserve and Shepherd Lookout along the way – a lot to see in just 3.4 km.
Eventually you will reach the Molonglo River Reserve. From here you could walk to Scrivener Dam. Riding the valley is impossible, as a continuous management trail along the entire length of the valley is missing.
The end of the road is just 3.4 km from Strathnairn. After a short rise, the road drops slowly into the valley with a maximum gradient of 10%. You will be riding back up this hill. Aranda hill from Glenloch Interchange is about 8% in comparison and shorter.
The ride and photos can be found on Komoot. Follow the link.
