Yellow Brick Road Details
Starts with a steady, zig-zag climb to avoid 8-Mile Gate Rd to get up Sandy Skid Rd to Pondy New.
Takes you from Reservoir Rd to Sandy Skid.
Yellow Brick Road was put in to keep bikes off 8 Mile Gate Rd and allows you to link easily with the sweet tracks outback.
And what's more, it's a well-built track that holds up to all weather. The hill side is steep but the gradient and switch backs are so well-designed and constructed you can power up it.
At the top it runs around the ridge line before a fast, short, steep descent to Sandy Skid and on up the road to Pondy New.
New section of trail loops back to the start and connects with the end of Taura trail. New section is flowy and fun.
Starts from Reservoir Rd at the bottom end of Hill Rd and ends on String Rd. New section finishes back on Reservoir Road
