Western Track
About the Track
Track Description

The track would be medium with no rain, but we did it when it was fairly wet and the track was very slippery. We did the track heading North and the main areas of difficulty are a climb and later a fairly slippery descent. When wet this track is a difficult.

I did the track in a stock Patriot and needed to be snatched out once and got stuck in ruts on one of the climbs. The descent was very slippery. The road tyres didn\'t help, but even those with big tyres found the going interesting.

1430 Have attempted this one before, but didn't get through. Tried it again today after when it was not so wet. Still some very interesting ruts and a steep descent towards the end with some mud and still very slippery in places. Would like to try it going the other way next time, starting at the Gentle Annie Track end. Mitsubishi Pajero Nov 15, 2008
1430 Attempted this track entering from Tea Tree Road end. Made it over half way through before some of the ruts became a bit too much for the non lifted Pajero. The new tyres on the Pajeor helped a lot as even though it had been dry for a few days, there were still some very slippery areas. Will be trying this one again. Mitsubishi Pajero Oct 18, 2008
36 Great Track. Toyota Landcruiser Feb 24, 2008
