This is the old road that motor vehicles used to drive up to the top of Hervey's Range before the bitumen road was constructed. Now closed to motor vehicle traffic, it is used by quad bikes and makes for a fun-filled descent on mountain bikes. Features numerous water bars for big air time.

Access Info

Climb from the bottom: travel along Pages road (sign posted on at intersection with Hervey's Range road) to find the gate.
Descend from top: shuttle up Hervey's Range road, a few hundred metres past the Hervey's Range lookout for the dirt road turn-off
