Does Burkes Bush Road Really Exist?

It's on Google maps, and some topo maps, but I've never seen it.

google maps may claim it exists (which probably means it's gazetted) - but ain't on the M36 sheets, and if you look at the aerials it obviously isn't formed

same as google map showing the unformed section of the summit rd from gebbies to herbert :crazy:

It does exist on the land survey maps though, I volunteer chris to turn it into a mountainbike track to loop with kennedy's bush road.

Huh. Always known about it but word was the top landowner was particularly nasty, and (years before fires) had deliberately put several deer fences across its path to impede potential users.
Is that no longer the case?

I have no idea where this is, but if its marked as legal access way the Walking Access Commission has information about how to go about getting access.
