The Pinnacle: always worth a visit

The offset area joins the upper Pinnacle with William Hovell Drive. It would be ideal to ride south from Belconnen but the restrictions at Kama killed this idea. The Pinnacle offset area is worth a visit even if you need to head up the hill to the main reserve to return home.
