the usual meeting place is at the caltex/red rooster at midvale

if you want to do the whole thing you start at sawyers valley taking the road about 500m before the pub and go up that till you reach some tanks at the top of the hill and crack a left on to the powerlines.

if you just want to do the good bits keep going past the tavern and turn down flyn road until you hit the powerlines

i agree with Get outmore . if you have a group meet in midland....then head out just as you hit the single lane.going into sawyers valley.....turn hard right into little street youll see power transformers....keep right on pipe track....then water tanks on right side.......turn left and there you go.........the top western end of powerlines...............................have fun as said should be nice and slippery with all the rain......let me know if u do go .wouldnt mind a play in the mud if im home .cheers

It can be if your timing is really bad. Luck of the draw but it is very popular at the moment. Still worth going though. Midweek is best, you have the whole track to yourself.

I used to get there a bit earlier and all the young blokes would still be in bed recovering from their Saturday nights!

I prefer the Powerline track to Wilbinga. Might be a bit cold to be near the beach. The Powerline track has plenty of "chicken tracks" or "resale routes" so hard tough it is depends on your mood.

Vote 1 for Powerlines at this time of year!

I done the powerline track last weekend and it has been carved up. Not many people could even get the first hill climb and that was the chicken track! I wouldnt try it withg all terrains and with out any lift. I coppped some panel damage and I sit three inches closer to the sun, only the usual but, banged up sills and gouges on the rear bar but on the same trip we lost a lada niva with upper control arms, a 60 series transfer case an 80 series 35inch tyre + panel damage another 80 series bash plate on the gas tank and I even managed to find a bog hole that came 3inches up past the window line if you want some carnage give it a go it should be fun!
