definetley a good example of "look where you want too go, not at what your trying to avoid"

Careful doing Roothog, we use it a lot and I walk it most times. It has it fair share of bowling ball type rocks in there
Most people I take thru there I encourage them the walk the bike with the engine running, better then drying a drowned bike

Fun climb out the other side with the odd rock it's a great ride I always enjoy the challenge. Ophir is worth a look with the old shafts in the mountain to explore.

When are you going out there??

Turon is ok at the moment, crossed at Turon gates (upstream) yesterday and as normal.

It's the crack in the ground that's the problem on the bridal track. Luck of the draw when the hill falls into the river.... probably not when your on it though!!!!

15 days ago I came from Hillend side the turon crossing was 400mm deep, further on there was a 400mm she oak across the track, I placed a couple of rocks either side and managed to get over, but one side of the track it was a metre of the ground and the low side it was resting in built up silt and where I road over was about 600mm from a drop straight into the water.
Further on ther e is a section washed out where a earth and concrete bridge was and tricky if you slip a 2.5 metre drop onto boulders but not impassable,but dangerous I was by myself.
There allso is a part where ther is a camping area and a house straight oppossite usally a sandy section be carefull here in the centre of the track there is a gully 1metre deep with steep sides,if going up the track you would come over a rise and it would be all over red rover but stick to the right hand side where it is wet and it is ok.

That is Wicket's Ck I think, it washed out in the last big rains.
I hear that council are attempting to seek Gov funding to repair the track, as it is a historical trail or something..
