    I haven't been there for 8 or so years, but I remember a section north of the gantry... pretty long hill with heaps of round rocks with a steep bit at the end that came out on a fire trail. Used to really test everyone, one of the harder bits up there without being the steepest.
    Might even have been in pine trees..
    I rode it with many a dbw rider and it was affectionately named (@#t hill.
    Anyone know the one im talking about? wish I could find a photo

    I did a bollard track on the weekend, the same one you took me on Pritch, is that the one you're referring to?

    we went down and up the bollard track last sunday, it's the track with bollards each end to keep the fourbies out. interesting track as one of the staff looking after mt mee is pro-bike and argued for setting up this bollard track to prove that dirt bikes don't cause much erosion on steep tracks if the 4x4s are kept out. seems to be doing the trick so far...

    i think i know the one, it's in the pines in the northeast corner that is now gated off. did it years ago, i remember at the bottom a mate told me whatever i did to not slow down as it got steeper and steeper. just about soiled myself on the last bit as the XR barely had enough speed to clear the last bit that looked to be more than 45 degrees. :eek1

    i don't think so, as per the last post it's gated off. there are probably ways to get into that side of the park but i'm pretty sure they closed it off due to residents complaints, the border tracks run along the backyards of quite a few houses on the eastern boundary.

    Yes mate c#_t hill it was, in the end it had about 3 bypasses! Those were the days. Pretty sure most of it is shut down these days.
