Cornflakes And Babyheads.

Hi Trevs. We’re heading up Mt Grey on Saturday and have always seen the start of another track at the antenna but never knew where it went. Trailforks says it has the above interesting moniker. Any info anyone ? Specifically where does it finish ? We usually park at the campground at the ford and ride up the road to the antenna and loop from there but something different would be cool. Cheers.

That's the descent part of red beech track. It ends up at the grey river that you need to cross, then has a bit of a traversey slog from there back to the campsite. I haven't ridden it, the slog at the end is apparently a bit of a mission. Been meaning to give it a go for ages.

It's a local track for me. About a km from the Mt Grey trig the first few kms of native bush are sublime, followed by a drop down to a creek with amazing super-techy riding and great scenery.

If you're not in hurry, there is a bit of bike pushing along the single track on the climb back up from the creek, but once your back on 'track' it's great riding again. If you have a long day to enjoy and take it all in it's a great mission.

Word on the street was it's all bush bash from when you hit the creek at the bottom back to the carpark at the ford. Is that not the case ?

The track is pretty well established, I wouldn't consider it bush bashing.

There was a lot of walking when I did it on the lower section, things like slips and river crossings really slow everything down. Its the only track I've ridden that's taken longer on the way down than on the way up.

We were up on Mt Grey yesterday, and there were 3 other riders we spotted over on the top with the trig on it while we were on the radio tower top flank. Was wondering if that was any of you guys and whether you did the Red Beech Track??

We just bombed down the regular Mt Grey Walkway. Finally nailing most of those switchbacks with the "poke your nose into the corner, balance, nose-wheely, flick back end around once or twice, then roll on" technique. Makes for a way faster descent!
