The Bruxner highway used to be poor surface in the old days but has been a great ride for a long time now. Perhaps the best riding between Drake and Tenterfield however it is scenic either side beyond this. To the west the road opens up heading out to Texas and to the east you enter the region from Lismore north that is full of terrific roads. You can even see some Autumn colour near Tenterfield.
I have removed the original post as it was too old, please see the map for location of this road.
