its only just opened

there was a working bee not long ago and apparently its slightly overgrown

its always been a shiny friendly track apart from the usual scratches

but as usual, if you are planning on going alone, be well prepared

I went alone, being naive - a couple of years ago.

Got through fine. Was a sunny dry day though.

You'll get through with a resonably capable truck and good tyres, maybe a winch etc. Most assuredly not shiny friendly, you'll be pushing through a bit of overhang and sliding up through cuttings.

Went through on the mountainbike at the end of Nov just before it opened to vehicles: track was in decent condition, a few slippery bits but driveable by any proper 4wd on mud tyres I'd guess. The scrub is narrowing it up a bit in a lot of places though.

If it breaks, build it stronger.
If it doesn't break, drive it harder.

Slippery bits are a bit of both but mainly mud. Should be heaps drier now though.
