this is a steep rocky track with 12 switchbacks and a small river crossing. The track is in a well maintained state consisting of mainly loose rock. Would be difficult to extremly difficult in the wet.
Track was re-graded prior to Labour Day weekend 2012 from Aberfeldy Road down to river. 2nd gear low range smooth climb back up to CMF track crossing. Too much water after the recent rains to attempt a crossing up to the switch backs.

|1052||currently this track is hard, if you are heading up the swithcbacks just around the last turn some one has dug rutts out it the rock and its fairly hairy getting past it. very steep very rocky did take a few attempts to complete well worth the scare. good tyres, clearance and lowrange are needed||Toyota Landcruiser||Dec 27, 2010|
|360||Did this track yesterday for the first time and had a ball, very sandy and rocky and STEEP, I got stuck on the 2nd last switchback but forced my way out of it(probly shouldve lowered my air pressures). Ill definately be going back for seconds but certainly not in the wet...Heres a few vids i took while up there.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4zM4Mily54 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOxQC2vRQwA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgIxNtbETbw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fC00dhtcA8||Mitsubishi Triton||Apr 4, 2010|
