    Hey Steve,

    I have been to Baal Bone track with some friends late November, following a trail we took with the club 1.5 years ago and unfortunately most of the track has been graded following the bush fires and not many pinch points remain. At the beginning there is only part of the rocky bit at the top, and the big rock at the end have been covered I guess with dirt

    There may few tracks left off the main one but not the typical route

    Cheers
    Khaled

    Hi Ryan,
    Yes I went up there on Sunday and as Khaled stated , itís been graded... Easy run now... I returned via the swamp trail which is before the final descent at the end of the trail as I had not done that track before and again it was a C grade trail...
