Spoke to one of the rangers who was not familiar with the route planned but suggested the best way yo find out would be for me to drive the trail with the ranger running the tours at a point earlier than the planned event. He's going to run the idea past those doing the tours and will get back to me next week



Alan,
If you need an extra opinion from a "modified v's standard Xtrail" point of view then you can give me a call and I'll gladly meetup. It might be good to also let the ranger see what difference there is in clearance with my lifted Xtrail.

If this is suitable for a standard Exy we'd be interested, and being first timers gives us a good chance to do something more adventurous knowing theres a friendly hand to help us out.

Peter, I don't think the rangers would want something along which is going to get stuck. That is why so far they specify low-range required. If a vehicle gets stuck it churns up the road and they want to protect the Great North Rd, so much that they usually have it gated to stop anyone travelling along the road when they wish.

This trip can be done in an X-Trail, however, it is fully booked, but they do have a waiting list

Re: 4WD DISCOVERY EXPLORER SERIES: 'Valley Creeks & Ranges' Tag-along Tour


Here are a couple of pics when I used top do this trek all the time.

Obviously these were taken in the wet and the majority of the track was like this, except when we had to line up the wheels over 2 logs each side laid side by side to get over a 1 meter trench about 2 meters long.

Still want to go!

That's not a track that's a river bed. I'd be bush bashing up on the hard stuff and avoiding those ruts instead. With clearance I'd give it a crack hehe, but only with a tow vehicle of course. Looks like a dirty trip anyways.

Re: 4WD DISCOVERY EXPLORER SERIES: 'Valley Creeks & Ranges' Tag-along Tour


That track was 69 kms long and it took us (3 of us, G60 Patrol, Fj55? Landcruiser and a Suzuki Sierra) 8 hours to do.
We were truley knackered after doing it and then have to drive home.

Those pics were from about 10 years ago but the last time I have done it was around 4 years ago, it wasn't wet, but the ruts were still there.

It might have changed since then, but the track has been closed for a good 10 - 12 years and I doubt that a grader would have gone through.

I don't think he mentioned low range for the hell of it.

Ahh, them were the days.........
