Can anyone tell me if the Power line Track in WA (Mundaring, just off the Great Eastern Highway) is still open and able to be used?

Thanks

Sure is Hooroo

Mate's son buried the mate's Pootrol in a puddle there a week ago and is considered out of favour for the time being - especially after being warned - 'don't go in the water' :O)))

Good luck - regards, Phil

Hi Broodie,
Ngangaguring Road AKA the Power Line Track for the most part started just up the hill from the Sawyers Valley Hotel, though I think there have been alterations to that access point.
Most people start from Talbot Road, about 1.5 kms from the Lakes Road House on The Great Eastern Highway.
It has been a couple of years since the last time I was there, the Compact 4WD Club of W.A. with the help of the Subaru 4WD Club, ran its foundation trip along the track and last revisited it some three years ago.
Unfortunately, there are some that appear to have little regard for the way they drive along the track or the condition they leave it in.
Some people have taken to “trailering” heavily modified vehicles to the track and then appearing to just cut loose.
The Western Austalian 4WD Association, TrackCare W.A. and D.E.C. are currently in the process of auditing, classifying and preparing to carry out repair work on the track. The base plan with the help of 4WDers, is to repair the major damaged sections and close off the multitude of side tracks.

Regards,
Wayne & Sally.

I was born and raised in stoneville and Mundaring and I thought knew most of the bush tracks from York to Northam to Kalamunda quite well but I don't think I have ever been on this track, I may have to go and have a look see. Who knows I may have been down it in my youth, but didn't know it. Thanks for the info Wayne.

OOPPPSSSSSSSSSSSS

following a chat with Broodie H3 today, I have found that one part of my post should have read ..........................

"Entry via Flynn Road"

....... and I have rechecked the other information :-) and all is well.

Regards,
Wayne & Sally.
