We went down to Bendethra a couple of weeks ago. Magic as the school holidays were over and the place was deserted. The only thing again that makes us angry are the fools that do not take there rubbish with them particularly beer bottles smashed in fire places. Some other fools had made a hill climb track that I do not thing the Parks people will be happy about. There is still evidence of the donutbleeps work.
Thanks for the effort put into your trek notes. At 28.6ks you call a road Middle Mountain Road. I think it should be Curranbene Creek Road.
A terrific map of this area is the 1:25000 NSW Dept of Info and Land Management SNOWBALL 8826-3S. I find these maps at servos.

Judging by 'your rig' this route should be easy even with a trailer. Club members have taken their trailers along this and other routes into Bendethera.

I have been in this way a few times in Subies and it is an easy drive - I have heard that it can be slippery in the wet, but I drove out in rain once without any problems.

If you stay for a couple of nights take the time to do the 'northern loop' (see in trek notes) - some good driving and spectacular views along the Western ridge.

I have submitted the Trek to ExplorOz to be added to the Trek page.Subaru Forester
