Nevis Vally to serpentine church

Postby dangerous » Tue Jan 08, 2019 5:20 pm

and... other places in between...

mid feb Im hauling my way south staying at all the old hotels like Vulcan at St Bathens, railway at Mossburn, Nasbi etc... and in between a lot of of main road driving.

Now all I have to go by is a old book 4WD south Is by Sibly and Wilson... in the past I have found a lot has changed since it was published, like tracks are now walking only, or are a subdivision, or flattened by logging... so those in the know have a look at the attachments and if you can read em let me know if anything has changed ta.

Just checked against a few tracks I know and yep Grade one is Nana spec, grade 5 Go with nana to tow her mobility scooter out spec. (Don't go alone)
That page was set up by a motorbike touring dude so grades may be more indicative for bikes tan 4wd, still relevant though.
