As stated above it when it gets wet is when you will have the problem. Many people have towed their trailers through the track and would do it with ease when it is dry. If it rains you have red clay hills to climb and you will get not traction however good is your 4 x 4. I always carry chains through this track just in case, but to date have not got caught with heavy rain. Like the Simpson you can do it with a trailer, it is just best if you do not, to preserve the track. Cheers Tony

We towed a small hardfloor cub camper nth to sth with an early 4wd Hilux in 1980, all went well till it rained overnight about halfway through. Twenty nine years later I can still remember the camper trying to overtake me on those red clay hills. I also remember looking back up and looking at two slide marks all the way down, was young and invincible in those days.

We have done the creb track many times the last towards the end of last year but never with a trailer . These days with the gates which are shut in wet weather , the track is kept relatively smooth with no wheel ruts . You would have no drama at all on the dry track but if it rains hard while there I imagine it would be even more dangerous than the early 80s as there are no ruts at all to help keep everything pointed in the right direction . Just keep an eye on the weather and you should be right .
