This route takes a small country road (Myers Creek Road) to drop you down off the ranges and back into Healesville. It is narrow, twisty, and does not carry much traffic so you rarely have to break rhythm. From the top of the hill near Toolangi you turn onto Myers Creek Road and run along the top of the ridge for about 3 km of fast relatively open and wide bitumen. There are two places I know where dirt roads enter from the north and often there is a bit of gravel but you should see warning signs about side roads as a reminder. From there it is a downhill run following a creek valley. Lots of medium tight and usually blind corners so take your time on the first run until you get a feel for the road. As you get near the bottom of the range and the road levels out the corners open up a little and it feels like one long chicane. Great fun at speed. You leave the corners and the trees behind about 2km outside Healesville. So the choice is yours, stop for a coffee, or turn right and pick up the Chum Creek to Toolangi route to do it all over again ... and again ...
