A dirt road that takes you up to Swine Flu - a much better option is via the Visitor Centre Trail. Also can be used by hikers all the way to the Mt Proctor climb. Please note no bikes are allowed above the fence where there is a sty. Bikers need to head left before this towards More Cowbell and Swine Flu Up New.
