They called quttin time on the logging but left behind an old caravan. Cyclone Yasi in 2011 has damaged the trail with numerous trees blocking the old track. Will riders ever make it thru to the Caravan again?

Features big whoop arse climbs, old log bridges requiring hike a bike and some wicked, rocky descents. Not for feint hearted - remember no mobile phone coverage here and no access by 4WD to bail you out. So take care.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
