The Bridle Trail is a great day out. in good weather any awd with decent clearance will get along this road with no problems. There are many great camp sites along this road. For the well prepard a return via Turon Gourge is possible.

31223 great drive in BUT still blocked near Monaghan's Bluff. Completed trip to Hill End via Box Range Track. Brilliant country and reasonably easy.Tried the Dixon Long rd to Orange BUT Macquarie river to wide/deep for no diff breathers. Next time! Nissan Pathfinder Jun 3, 2014

40449 Did this in new 2013 Subie. Scared because it was only two weeks old. I didn't fail us though. It did great. So annoying about rock slide. I would be pushing the council to fix it. We got right up to the monogans bluff sign pritty much but just before it there was a clearing with agate saying track closed. IT WAS UNLOKED and I was tempted to continue on. AMAZING TRIP. Don't be scared. Just do it. Its worth it in any car. Subaru Outback May 30, 2013
