       One of the earlier built tracks and not included in the Yackandandah trail network.
      Not signposted, unmaintained but can still follow the track through the leaf litter but will become harder the more the leaves build up.
      Would have been good as an alternative route back from the "long" section of the yellow loop, making the long loop even longer but also eliminating the 2 way section from the long / short intersection to Service Basin Rd.

       Dr Death is part of the official Yack Tracks network, however like a few other tracks, it was not included on the first edition of our map, and not signposted.
      There are plans to upgrade the surface in the future.

       It’s been recently upgraded and is an awesome descent now.

      Top tip: After finishing it, double back on Wheely Wavey and descend Busy Beaver for maximum downhill credits!
