Fords crossing Ractliffe track
About the Track
Track Description

Fords crossing is on Ractliffe track, where it crosses the river it has a steep bank on the north side thats rocky, and the south side is smooth and ramp like..The water was around 2 ft deep when i drove thru it in may 08.This Track is seasonally closed!

Added by Discotwo: I Drove both from North to South and then South to North on 9/11/11. The track was dry and quite manageable for a Newbie like me. The creek was just a trickle. I am looking forward to trying this track out after some heavy rains.No sign of the fallen tree mentioned earlier.

23765 Tried this track out on 09/11/11. Went North to South and then did South to North. The track was try and quite manageable for a Newbie like me.

3307 Completed in the company of a Triton and Defender from South to North. South entry to the crossing was very muddy, slippery and rutted. The crossing itself was very low (only about 1 foot of water) and the large downed tree is still there, although there is now a quick detour around it. North side is very steep and rocky - the Defender had to be snatched up due to bad tyres. All-in-all well worth a visit. Note that the track is seasonally closed also. Toyota Landcruiser Jun 13, 2011
