Upper Crash Palace is a great little section of trail. The drop in is a great filter feature, best rolled into slowly to make the flat left hander. Follow it down and you will come across a few rutted corners and narrow turns in the forest before crossing The Doctor and dropping onto Boundary Road

Lower Crash Palace is found by following Boundary Road

Access Info

Farm road (shortly above Boundary Road intersection).

Disclaimer

The drop into the trail is immediately followed with a flat left hand corner, watch your entry speed
