A trail that follows the gravel road heading north. A new entry was made to separate the traffic from the southern exit to Lawsons Loop and was linked into a section trail built by graduate engineers from WorleyParsons. This section = GDO Link then connected to a section of Lawsons Loop that wasnt being used very often due to the very steep drop in off the gravel road that was technically far more difficult than the rest of the track.

Access Info

Drop in off the 4WD track down and cross the wooden bridge. Exits onto the gravel road at the northern end.
