Im just wondering if anyone has been in the area between yalwal rd and braidwood rd, more specific along mintbush and monkey gum, and if the have come across a monster of a hill with 2 cars wrecked at the bottom of the hill.
I came across this hill on my trail bike and after numerous attempts could not scale it. If any one knows where i am talking about could u pls send me a message. Thankyou

I have come across two big A.. hills in the area and I have attempted to ride up the hill you speak of, one bloke did on a KX250, then we came back on the same track and he rode down it! The rest of us mortals walked the bikes up & down.
The other big hill is further south of the Braidwood rd, not as bad as that one but still a workout!

DO u ride in that area much? Im out there pretty much every weekend, we have a track out there aswel where we set our freestyle ramp up. Have u ever see any rangers in the area from mintbush to braidwood rd. Just curious cos i tend to stay away from yalwal due to the rumours of police and rangers being natzis out there.

Hey guys,

A few Canberra riders here - can you be a bit more specific in the area? What's the riding like?

Familiar with Charleyong Crossing and Nerriga Rd if that helps

Sounds like some fun out there to be had ;-)
Cheers,

Hey Ivan, not the area you are talking about, this is about 15kms up braidwood rd from the princes hwy end. The riding around charlyong is equally good, spent a bit of time out there myself. I currently live in tomerong near huskisson and are moving to canberra mid july. Is there many places around canberra to ride which will be trouble free from the authorities. What is fairbairn like? Have your ridden at a property about 10km out of braidwood towards canberra. The place is on the road to lambert.
