Hi Inkbandit,

Mundaring to Flynn Rd ok and easy going.
Flynn Rd to the bog holes a bit chopped up, lockers would help, chicken tracks available but getting rough.
From the bog holes to Mt Observation and highway easy again.

Not sure how recent your after, this was about 6 weeks ago.

Cheers.....Lionel.

I recently did the Mundaring to York trip with four other recently. The section from Flynn Drive is not in good shape, and I suggest ( unless you have front and rear lockers and plent of clearance) you stick to the chicken tracks. Cross over West Talbot Rd where the mundaring track ends, and its easy going from there to the look out post near York. from the look out , its about ten minutes drive into York. The ectiom up to Flat ROck is now difficult so we take the chicken track round to get to the top of flat rock - which is about the half way mark. The run up the side of the fence line, depends on your vehicle, and your own ability, as that area has been chopped to hell. We use the chicken track to avoid any major problems. Once over the fence line it easy going to West Talbot Road , and then through to the look out at York.
Enjoy yourself. Just watch where you are going ,as its very dry and the sand is powdery and soft.

A pic of the last time I did this track, all in a good days fun. As mentioned the are plenty of chicken tracks so you don't have to take the hard lines if not confident.

My car is to valuable to risk being " parked" like that and I am too old to even try it. My life - whats left of it, is also tooooooo valuable , and SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED AT ALL TIMES says that if I pull a stunt like that she will take the keys off me for good !
