    I haven't been up there for a few years but if it is anything like what it used to be i'd be heading for home fastish if it starts raining, the track near the start has a clay type surface and gets pretty slipery, take that new quad of yours for a drive up there but wear something warm it is pretty exposed up the top. the track goes a bit further past the hut but gets pretty boggy in places. if you are lucky a deer will pop out on the road for you, not that i've been that lucky up there.

    I was a up there not long ago you'd get a car to hut but not past it.
    The choppers have been smashing it senseless.......
    There was a chiller truck up the top and they shot 8 deer round the hut road area while I watched.......

    Yep I feel the same.....
    The chopper shot 3 deer me and mate where in the process of stalking up the cats paw, one of the big slips on the Dannevirke side.
    The pilot saw us clear as but that didn't stop them blowing them away....

    I Wish that road had a massive slip or something and was closed for good.
