    Rode on Dec 21st. First 3 kms or so is getting quite rutted and there’s potholes everywhere. Below this first section, once you get in the native, the road is in great shape. Fast and flowing and so much fun

    Checked this out on the weekend, cool little camp ground. Be a good base for the 42nd traverse. There is a track that runs to the 42nd from the end of the campground that I’ll check out sometime. Road seemed to be fine condition wise, few bumps and such, nothing unexpected from a forestry road. Worth a look if your in the area and does provide a few good photo opportunities.

    Rode this yesterday. In very good condition – wouldn’t hesitate to take the S10 in. The caves are a bit of a disappointment though 😉
