Yengo National Park Feedback

Drove this full trek 30th April 2011. Went in just after a week of rain - but no problems. Road graded and not really 4WD essential for the vast majority of it in my opinion - except perhaps for the stretch down the Boree Trail to Burragurra - which is signposted 4WD only. Some slippery bits and a couple of spots where the clearance is nice. We pushed on south for a further ten or so km's, expecting to hit a gate, but we didn't. Trail overgrown in spots and definitely some 4WD only sections. We eventually turned around and came back up and around to Finchley's Camping area - which was a dust bowl. Mogo creek much better.

Enjoyable day, and the missus didn't stress out too much about the road ;)

Hi Rob B

I did the same trek on Sunday 1st may nice day.
Started from St albans, the place was full of mountain bike riders some big competition on they were all over the road for about 11klm.
Had lunch at the Wollombi pub.
Then headed out around the track. nice views from Finchleys look out.
Didn't end up getting right down the end of the Boree track getting to late.
As you said not real rough easily done in a car in the dry.
Mogo camping ground looked a nice grassy spot for an overnighter.
Certainly some history up that way on the convict built North road.
Drove along the old road from Wisemans ferry to Bucketty in about 84
Before it was locked of was a good trail.

Did the Howes Trail on April 23rd. No signpost at all on Putty Rd but there is one 100m down the track. Helpful - not!! Freshly graded for first 20+ km until junction with track to homestead. Stayed in 2WD for entire 54km across to junction with tar south of Wollombi where there is a very LARGE signpost. Helpful - yes!! if you are heading east to west. Stayed at Broke at what would have to be one of the largest free camps about with people stretched out for over a km. But only one toilet block.
It's a nice loop from Broke up to Singleton to refuel and see the worlds largest Sundial then down the Putty Rd to the hard to find turnoff, 54km of dirt, back up thru Wollombi and then Broke. All prefaced the day before with a trip on Wiseman's Ferry. Sweet......W
