Shortcut from Hill Road to OCR Belmont.

Description

This track provides a shortcut between Hill Road and OCR Belmont. The shortcut is useful in either direction, avoiding the less direct route via the airstrip and the top of Duck Creek.

The track has a 5% grade and an only slightly bumpy grass and rock surface, so there is nothing too challenging.

Getting there

About 2/3 of the way up Hill Road, as you approach a small stand of trees, look towards the left (south) and there is a gate and a farm track heading around the hill – that's the bottom of the track.

Heading north on OCR Belmont there is a sign that says "Please use poled track", referring to OCR Belmont's first significant hill climb. Immediately to the east of the sign is the top of this track.
