About the Track
Track Description

Did some research on the net ,then went out for a look at Meryla state forest

The best track i found was gun rock falls fire trail (you can drive across the falls then on to a good hill climb) and the power line track that cuts through the middle of the park (good ruts to play in)

There are great views from the end of Meryla rd and from the end of red hill fire trail were you\'ll find twin falls but on this day i couldn\'t see a thing , you\'ll also find plenty of walking trails if your in to that kind of thing.

i found a lot of small camp spots all over the park but the biggest one was off Meryla rd just past link fire trail (had some mud ruts to play in as well)

There is no collecting fire wood from in the park and you must check if there are any fire bans before lighting one

all in all i had a fun day exploring the area and would recommend it for a day or weekend getaway from the city


                           have fun out there

47488 deep mud holes found nice little camp spot near a creek good day out Toyota Landcruiser Mar 31, 2015
56757 Did a day trip down here today and had a blast! (About an 1h 35m drive from South Hurstville). Plenty of mud puddles to play in - beware, some are A LOT deeper than you'd expect. Drove down Patons Fire Trail which was a lot of fun. Stopped at the camp ground and had a bite to eat with the family before heading back to Gun Rock Falls Fire Trail which exits onto a paved road at the end. I look forward to coming back sans kids and exploring a lot more! Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Feb 28, 2015
53923 First time on track. A couple of challenging spots. Track marked with a spray painted X on the tree takes you down to the river crossing and up the rockwall. If you ignore this and go straight on the fire trail you can go out to the lookout. You will get back on the tar and travel about 2km before there is a sneaky left turn into the bush this is where you can come in from the other side and go down the rockwall and river crossing. I felt going down the hill and entering the river from this side was a little easier. Water up to the door seals. Keep to the right then hard left in the water just before the rock ledge. Cheers Matt. Mitsubishi Pajero Nov 15, 2014
49171 Good day trip spot from Sydney. First outing of my 80 series, went the wrong way through Gunrock Falls Creek Track - downhill was good, and the creek crossing barely wet the tyres if you go around the edge in the shallows. Wanted to go offroad all the way to Bendeela but track not open all the way (ranger only access) Toyota Landcruiser May 29, 2014
12813 Great day at Meryla State Forrest 2 x Patrols 1 x Landcruiser and the Jeep. Gunrock Falls Firetrail the steps have been washed out at the bottom after several attempts to climb with all vehicles, had to winch the up to get over washouts and damage. Creek crossing was good still keep to left if heading to the step as there is a hole. Jeep Commander May 21, 2014

28680 Gun Rock Fire Trail back to front. Hill climb (descent) was a bit challenging for a stock Wrangler. River crossing easy due to rocks on the deeper side, helped a lot! Jeep Wrangler Dec 28, 2013

30535 Have done Gunrock Falls Fire Trail a few times now, however this time round found the Barina has been removed (presumably State Forests), however was a dead kangaroo in there. Also crossing the creek beware of the big hole just before the bank. Stay to the left (ie if heading towards rock steps from the falls) when crossing. Volkswagon 4wd Oct 19, 2013
40044 had fun on gun rock falls trail. stay to the left at the creek. I had to go the right at the steps, due to no lift. Had a lot of fun in the mud at the powerlines track, but wash off asap as it stains your paint( mine is white, showed up) Toyota Hilux Sep 10, 2013

41572 Some good fun to be had here. Had a look at gunrock falls but the creek crossing put me off. Some good ruts / mud puddles to play in along the main trails and powerline tracks.

38084 It was a good and somewhat easy track, little short for my liking. Toyota Landcruiser Feb 17, 2013
29571 Gun Rock Falls fire trail: Hill climb was good stayed left hand side and no major issues. Left hand turn leads to powerline track, extremely rutted and muddy,hard getting through it if it's rained in the 7 days. Best explored with a second car. Nissan Navara Jul 22, 2012

17457 nice easy drive, 2wd access mostly, some awesome views, Gun Rock Falls trail was the best for 4wd's, but there's no chance of recovering that Barina, or what ever car it is! lol. Nissan Patrol Jan 14, 2012
