    It's a walking trail now but you can't ride it. Even Wombat Hill Trail is locked. That was a great ride to the end with some stunning views over the valley.

    Looks to me like you can get to the junction of Wambat Hill Lookout Trail and Griffins Fire Trail from Meryla Road... the locked gates are just after that junction on both tracks. Then walk up 200 meters to Meryla Pass.. You cannot legally take a motor vehicle past those gates... a mountain bike yes.

    There appears to be a right of way almost to that point... at least on the LPI base map.

    Yeah, that's right. You got me with the walk up 200M to Meryla Pass. It's all down hill (Griffins Fire Trail) to Meryla Pass until you hit the river crossing then up the other side. A great ride sadly never to be done again. Same as the ride to Wombat Hill Lookout.

    I've seen about a dozen blue trees around the Great Southern region. A couple of weeks ago, the Albany MenShed group (of which I'm a member) was in the process of erecting a big blue steel tree sculpture, that the blokes built, in their yard.
