Geehi Reservoir ride via Schlink Pass is a challenging track ideally suited for experienced mountain bikers. Located in a quiet section of Kosciuszko National Park, you’re more than likely to have it all to yourself.

Best tackled in summer, this undulating ride along Schlink Pass Road takes you through ever-changing scenery – from temperate to sub-alpine and alpine regions. Schlink Pass is the highest point on the ride at an elevation of 1800m, so be sure to stop and take in the sweeping views.
