Pyrenees ranges state forest., VIC

See more trips
Hi All doing a trip to the Pyrenees ranges. Never been there before so unsure of the difficulty of the tracks. Depending on the group we can try the harder tracks. But my main objective of this trip is to explore the area. If anyone joins the trip and has been there before your input will be appreciated on the tracks and place's to go. Looking at going after work Saturday arriving in avoca around 4pm. Driving to camp at Glenpatrick camp reserve, then hit the tracks Sunday. Can do some tracks Saturday after arriving at camp if anyone is keen. Day tripper welcome just meet us at the camp site at 8.30 am.
Thanks Luke

Keen to go back again.... some of the tracks were graded when we went there last yr....but still a lot of interesting tracks....and some steep rocky tracks........ can't remember the name though...but as you can see, it's a relatively small area...... just explore as many tracks as possible....I will confirm closer to the date (if it is not FULL yet...haha)

Trip full already that's great, a bit of pressure on me now . If I can get all of the passengers names who are coming as it will help me with the planning of the w/e, PM me if you prefer. Mien & Jack don't have to of course. My 4yo daughter will be coming also as she is busting to go camping again. Also can I ask who is coming up Saturday or Sunday? thanks.

Hey guys im new to this page and was thinking of coming on this trip, have a 105 cruiser with 33's. No lockers. Just wondering what kinda age group do most of these trips? Cheers
15 Mar 2015
Brendan Potter (pottsy)
Hi matt i don't see what age group has to do with going 4wdriving ? If you enjoy going 4wdriving just go and meet like minded people. This is also my first trip and looking forward to meeting other 4wdrivers.
15 Mar 2015
Matt (mattj105)
Yeah exactly right just curious i couldnt care who i go with at the end of the day as long as its a good trip. I might come on this one but cant 100% commit right now
15 Mar 2015
Trip Leader Luke (bushstig)
Hi mate , I'm 43 to me it doesn't matter about your age we all love going 4wding and camping . Last week I went on a trip with 14 people for the W/E had one of my best trips ever thanks to the people on the trip. The age group ranged from early 20's to 50's. Hope this helps
15 Mar 2015
Matt (mattj105)
Sounds good, ive got most things on my 105 series just needa get some front recovery points and ill jump in :)
15 Mar 2015
Anth (Fourby4diesel)
There is a few of us will be up there Friday night, might see you lot at camp Saturday night.

I've noticed in 4wding & camping age does not matter, most people get along very well regardless of age.
In our regular group we have mainly 30's to 60's everyone gets on well & we have a cracker of a time.
It's more attitude than age.

I'd like to see a trip report. Some nice rough tracks up there, last thing we heard from that group was asking which vehicles had winches so they were having some challenging times.
