**The gravel is in its most fragile state currently please take care of the track as it beds down. No spinning wheels, consistent steady speed will help you get up.  if you loose traction roll back down and try again.**

as the rain falls it will help compact the gravel and bed it down better, it is a very steep section. thanks


Now the less important part that most wont read, the track works are basically completed. some containment edges to stop the track from growing outward could be continued, we have done some already, and also some erosion barriers to stop the soft sand washing down could also be created to help maintain it. i will attempt to take a ute load of FCR with me for the next few climbing trips out there to top up the lower section and pot hole, ( one truckload could only stretch so far) if you also have a Ute and would like to partake in this feel free to contact me if you needed some advice,

Lastly Huge thanks to everyone that made this happen, i wont publicly name everyone that helped out either on the day or logistically at risk of missing someone off, but thanks heaps,

  1. Big thanks to Dan who “deserves a medal”, and to Garry, Owen and others who put a huge day of effort moving and compacting 10m2 of gravel onto the sand river road, to make it passable by 2wds again without damaging the road further.

    The gravel delivery cost around $500, which the CCT is funding.

    As we don’t have fees, and work only from donations, this leaves our coffers a little bare, so we are asking for donations to help cover the cost of this and future projects.

    So if you use the road at Sand River, please donate a bit of cash to help with this and future projects:
