Mahuta Gap Rd. (just south of Baylys Beach, off Mahuta Rd./ Mt. Wesley Rd.) is another fairly easy entry.
Popular with the local 4WDs and fishermen to avoid the tourist-hubbab at Baylys.
Narrow valley barely containing the twin-track, it’s another “wet” entry/ exit (sort of like Te Paki up 90Mile).
Good for getting off the beach with a decent freshwater- splash to get any salt off the bikes. Mind oncoming traffic, it’ll get very squeezy with panniers/ bags on.
