unknown trail - watagans

Hi guys,

There's a trail that starts at the bottom of daniels pt and macaluta, where you cross over a sandy creek bed straight up a huge rut and then it follows the creek for ages before crossing the creek into a massive hill climb.
it is an old access road as far as i can tell as some parts are firetrail width and cleared but the majority is single and overgrown with a massive tree down at one point.
i rode it ages ago and it was really fun and want to revisit but am not sure if its passable anymore. it showed signs of being quite ridden at one point, ruts and well defined single, just a lot of vines to crawl through.

anyone been through there recently? does it have a name?

It's called Pole Point and last I heard it was not in good shape.

Georgeís pt leads down to it and there was another way down from Whitemans Ridge too many years ago ! Pole pt leads down as well ,Definitely downhill all the way , pointless riding up there as itís in extremely poor condition. These tracks were made by the Central Coast dirt riders 35 yrs ago or more . Be very cautious as itís a hard slog these days , lots of washouts and fallen trees . Chainsaws on foot to slowly reopen them . Have fun , Iíve ridden them many times with Brett Smith & Craig Smith ( both former Australian enduro champions ) . These tracks are difficult to ride , you have been warned .

Is The bridge still broken across the creek?
Come to think of it probably no water in the creek with this drought.
