There are a number of great hidden Categorised residential climbs to the south of Emerald.  Most riders wouldn’t have heard about them as they end in dead ends roads.  With good tough climbs.  Great scenery you can basque in the beauty and the tranquillity of this magnificent area which is relatively untouched by the cycling world.

The climb starts at the intersection of Jamina Way & Old Beaconsfield Road.
