Details

Previous description of this being a 4x4 track is wrong, for the most part. Once you get past the initial firebreak part, it turns narrow, then steep, then narrower, then steeper. Thrown in the fact is predominantly clay based, it becomes a super tough descent in the wet.

This track has huge potential (IMO) to be a long, fast, techy, descent. However it a super overgrown at present.

Access Info

From the top car park either take the Mt Climie firebreak or head up Mt Climie until you find the entry to Plateau Ridge.
