Would recommend riding South-to-North. The track drops in from South Boundary Road into multiple heavily eroded, rocky, rutted sections of moderate grade; before plunging down into a very steep rock-face down to the creek. Grip is not too bad however the track is very steep - very good descending skills and experience is required, and it is very difficult to stop once you begin the steep section, however you can stop on a shelf before the final rock descent down to the creek which is the steepest bit. Enoggera Creek at the bottom is very scenic and there are nice waterholes up and down the creek a few hundred metres. Creek is difficult to cross without getting wet after heavy rain. The climb back up to Mt Nebo Break is steep and eroded as well but not nearly as steep as on the other side of the creek. Expect to push for a few minutes on the way up to Mt Nebo Break

Access Info

Track can be accessed off the side of South Boundary Rd or from Mt Nebo Break

      Very eroded across the majority of the track. Nice wet dirt though. Creek was flowing well at the bottom
