    Tried this road on Sunday the 12th at 10am and the gate was locked at the north end. Also there was a big sign that said “No Motorcycles”. But from the look of things theres been alot of traffic through the gates. So dont know whats going on here.

    No idea sorry. It really needs someone to ring the local council and ask what the deal is about the public easement.

    I emailed TCDC, their response is below:

    Thank you for your email.

     

    This is a private road / track, you will need to contact Ernslaw Forestry regarding access.

     

    Kind Regards,

    I thought Public Easements were defined via the council but maybe this one is/was just the company trying to be nice to locals.
