The first shady downhill out of Dwellingup didn't let us warm up, but the undulating trail to the ranger's hut soon had us up to operating temperature.
The ride up the hill after crossing the Murray River was easy enough, then the ride along the form into Nanga was a fast cruise. The diversion straight off the form into Nanga was still in place even though it was due to have been finished about a month ago, but it only cut about 1.
It takes you off the form down a steep hill straight into Nanga, rather than following the form that gentley swings around the back of Nanga.
We were soon on King Jarrah form. The King Jarrah tree is m off the trail. The first m is narrow single track, but once you cross the little stream, it is all uphill and completely unrideable - leave your bikes behind. The steep walk is worth it though - the jarrah is truly magnificent, roughly the diameter of a decent sized karri tree, and nearly as tall. I guess it survived because it is on such a steep slope and was not easy to harvest.
We were at the hut by 3pm. Our back up team had already carried up our gear in so after afternoon tea we had a browse of the waterfall near the hut. We decided to follow the stream up the hill and see how far we could go. Firstly, we put a waypoint for the hut on our mobile phone's GPS - that way if we got lost we could navigate back to the hut.
It was pretty dense up there, but we did find an old form that was so overgrown it was a struggle to walk along! We also saw a rocky out crop that was on the map, but we did not get to the top of the hill or anywhere near Nanga Rd. However, we did get a weak signal on the mobiles, so we all feverishly sent texts to home. It is a long way to walk just to send a text, and the risk of getting lost is high you won't see the hut till you are pretty close so I wouldn't recommend chasing the signal unless it was an emergency.
We used ours sense of direction to get back to the hut ok GPS was like an umbrella - you never need it when you are prepared and started getting ready for an early nightfall. Sunset is about 5.
Our chef took down a 3 burner gas stove, so we had a veggie curry, a chicken curry, an Indian side dish, naan bread, then a traditional Indian dessert - what a treat after rehyd meals. We had a HF radio, so we threw up an antenna and tried it out. We managed to contact Perth, but communications were patchy.
By about 8pm we had finished everything so we ended up in the sleeping area chatting as it was abit warmer. Next morning was a struggle to get out of bed - my little temperature gauge said zero degrees. We packed the gear up and carried it back to the vehicle, and hit the trail about 9. The King Jarrah form after the Alcoa gate was similar to yesterdays - pretty flat, good surface and nice bush.
The diversion turned us right and up a hill to almost join Nanga Rd. The MB follows Nanga Rd closely, but is a nice single track in most parts. After that the trail was mainly on forms. Martin's knee was a bit sore, so he had a couple Voltaren and made sure he spun up any hills in granny gear. This slowed us down abit, but gave us more time to stop and look, to take photos and soak up the sun and the fresh bush air - all very nice.
If this is the mill, it was put there in and destroyed by fire in All that is left is the very large concrete foundations and some saw pits, but it was worth a look. We saw some very large tree stumps in the area that were clearly cut by a saw. When we came off Cowina Rd two of us took the challenging section, while Martin followed Scarp road to Logue Brook dam on the road on the map that follows the lake.
The "touring route" swings right up a slight rise and heads toward the dam wall along the north and west side of Lake Brockman. It is well signposted with a DPaW brown painted post and rail type of sign marked LBD and at a few other signs with maps, restrictions, etc.
After m is another junction where the track along the northern side of the dam swings right and climbs a 10m ridge, and there is an impromptu track to the left that follows the shore of the dam around to the picnic spot.
It's a bit lumpy but doesn't have the 10m climb. It might be the better touring route. The climb up the ridge is short but sharp, with minimal wash away and easy to negotiate, then there is a gentle run down the other side of the ridge to the carpark. Both tracks end in a carpark in another m, and rejoin the MB. Total diversion is 1. As a general note the touring route is, at the moment anyway, very smooth and compacted by 4WDs and easy enough to ride, although the first part from the start of the challenging section was a little muddy and with a bit of rain it would be very muddy for the m to the track around the northern side of the lake.
Do orientate your map to the ground and follow the lake edge if you take this route. It was now 1 pm. The log fire was on, the coffee was hot and the lunch most satisfying, so all we had to do now was load up and head back to Perth. Surprisingly enough, after an 11 hour sleep last night, most people in the car fell asleep on the way home!
I was dropped near the pub and started riding at 3pm. The forecast for 3 days was 13 to 23 degrees approximately and chance of a shower or 2 over the 3 days. So the weather looked great, but the days are pretty short at this time of year sunrise 7am, sunset 5.
I was riding on the X29 er with the Bob trailer, but not too loaded as it was only a 2 full day ride. The ride into the Murray River valley is pretty easy - it was mainly down hill for this direction. Around Nanga the trail is mainly old form, so it was all pretty flat and easy, and even the challenging section was all rideable. I had the one small diversion at Nanga, and it was easy to follow. It got very dark as the trail here is very shaded and Bidjar is in a valley. Got in around 5. I had the green thai curry rehyd meal for dinner.
Bidjar Hut water was decidedly green not tea coloured from the tannin in leavesso I filtered it and used a Steripen on it and I suffered no ill effects. It had no taste either, so another good sign. I reported it to the ranger the next week as Winter is a good time to empty clean and refill the tanks - one at a time of course.
Over 12 months about multi day riders passed through and signed the log.
The last rider was through here a couple of days ago. Read the riders notes about the Antichinus native rat stealing food and local feral pigs in the area. I went to bed about 8. I had my usual uncomfortable night - even 2 sleeping mats is not as comfortable as my bed!

It was cool, but not cold - I guess 12 degrees minimum. When I got up at 6am in the dark, there was lots of fog which makes it hard to see with a helmet light - you just get a wall of white in front of you as the light hits the water drops. I had coffee, weetbix and fruit for breakfast and packed and ready to go by 8am. I had a quick walk to the waterfall and I loved the big jarrah by toilet.
I rode back to main route and the start of the deviation. The white gate was open, the markers indicated to head South, but I over thought the deviation and headed back along the King Jarrah form - the wrong way. I had come along this way last year, and I got confused even with the obviously clear signage.
I think my "deviation" added 10 km. Luckily I will be down this way again next month, so I can track the right route. The MB had some nice single track along side Nanga Rd. There was a fair bit of old form and even some gravel road.
The tunnel under the mining road was interesting. I didn't go to the arboretum - I see a lot of trees on this ride! The only challenging part was near Lake Brockman Tourist park, and even then it was fairly short.
I diverted in to the cafe at the caravan park, as I think nearly every rider does. The cafe is open 7 days a week, and they have a great menu of burgers, all day breakfast, drinks, ice creams and cakes. I spent an hour there - eating, charging my phone, using a real toilet, texting home etc. I left at 1 pm and had no drama re joining the Munda Biddi trail. I think I most probably cut out 2 km all up with my diversion, but my all day breakfast and take away cake was worth it.
There is another diversion on Stromlo Rd, which I think is an old form itself. It was really well sign posted, with a map at the start, the diversion markers in place, and the old trail markers had plastic bags over them to show they were not in use.
It was a great job by DPaW. The trail is now nearly all old form, good surfaces and no big hills. With this perfect weather no rain todaythis is just perfect! I was at Yarri hut by 5. Had a soup and a snack bar again as soon as I got in then Mexican chicken with cous cous rehydrated meal - bit spicy but good. By 8pm I was ready for bed with another talking book. It was a warm night maybe 15 degrees minimum with a bit of rain overnight, and drizzle in morning. There were a few complaints in the riders log regarding the water here a bit brown from tannin, but I thought it was OKbut especially Bidjar, where it was green.
I had no ill effects but I did treat it. Both water tank taps face the same direction ie face you as you ride in from Perth. The one facing in towards the hut ie the second one as you approach from Perth has better coloured water than the tap facing up the trail ie the first one. Next morning I got wet from "Tunnels of Green" near Yarri that were dripping wet. Otherwise there was just a little drizzle that I didn't even put a rain coat on for. It was very humid and I was wetter from sweat than the other 2 days.
It was 17 degrees at 10am, then the sun came out. Zephyr Rd was wonderful - a smooth, solid undulating road under some big jarrah trees. The soft overcast light made for wonderful photos. The photos show you what I mean.
It was a highlight of this section. There was diversion around the Zephyr rd logging area recently The diversion was on the Munda Biddi Foundation website in March '14, and directed you down Niger Rd and onto Mornington Rd for an extra 4 km approximately. When I rode through in May '14, the route as per the map was open, and signs of logging on Zephyr rd were obvious, including many marked trees.
There were a few notes in the rider's log at Yarri complaining about the diversion around the logging area that takes you down the power line trail- one said it was a 14 km roller coaster on pea gravel dated Oct ' The diversion down the power line trail would be very hot in Summer as there is no shade. This section turned off Mornington Rd onto Niger Rd unmarked in the vicinity of Big Tree Rd which is on the opposite side of the road, and not shown on the MB map- it is near the Muja- Cannington power lines on the map.
I spoke with DPaW and they say they used both the powerline track and Mornington Rd as the diversion - both had their positive and negatives. I was advised there is no more harvesting in area for foreseeable future so no diversion is needed but they have left markers on Mornington Rd just in case it needs to be reactivated.
However there will logging nearer to the Yarri Hut in future and this may need a diversion in years to come. When you cross Mornington Rd you can turn right if you want to high tail it into Collie. The Munda Biddi has less hills, but has more pea gravel and can be a slow hot ride in Summer.
I also heard a few chainsaws at various points on the trail as locals collected firewood, but didn't see any 4WD or motorbike just their trails. As usual, I had the two huts to myself and saw no riders on the track except 2 day riders 10 km out of Collie going the opposite way. On the road by 8am. Looks like it will be warm again. We were planning on heading straight to to Yarri Hut, as it is equal distance to Collie and we don't have to back track about 20km along the trail the next day.
We had about 8km of up hill along Richards Rd, which was sealed for the first kilometre, but then went to a gravel road through the farm lands with views to the coastthen tracks through the bush. As we hit the bush we had a chain break, but I had a chain breaker and a spare Whipperman link, so it didn't take long to fix.
The down hill to the Nglang Boodja hut was fast, but abit rough. We didn't stop there, but kept going to Honeymoon Pool. The map indicates water is available, but all taps there were marked not for drinking.
We were about to fill up water from the river when a visitor gave us 10 litres, which was very nice. By now my temperature gauge said 30 degrees.
The "challenging" section was ahead of us, so we jumped on River Road gravel road and stayed on it till Wellington Dam Road, a sealed road. It was hot on the open road with the hills but rideable. We turned off towards Dwellingup as it was about 20km to Yarri Hut, the same distance to Collie. As we crossed Mornington Rd, we stayed on the sealed road as the trail is full of gravel and abit boring, and we were now pretty tired - the last 20km were a struggle.
There were a few trees down and a few puddles just enough to soak my shoes but nothing serious. At Yarri hut at 5pm. This hut is half a hut on the side of the trail over looking a small valley - very nice. No phone signal at the hut, so cleaned up, ate and bed at 8pm. We were awoken at 5. Got up about 5. It was a pleasant night - warm, no wind but drizzling. It is my last full day on the trail - a bit exciting but a bit sad as well.
We were ready to go by 7. We enjoyed the forms around Yarri - it was another great bit of riding. My shoes didn't dry out from yesterday, and it is drizzling all the time today, so damp shoes are here for the day. There was a small bypass due to logging at Stromlo rd, and once we crossed Clarke rd a good gravel road we followed that to Logue Brook Dam. The facilities had improved greatly from last time, so we had an all day breakfast and hot drinks to warm up.
Its not cold, its just we are all damp. I texted my family, then we left about 1pm. We cut the red section out after Logue Brook Picnic area by staying on the road that follows the Lake, navigating through the tracks and hitting Scarp Rd.
The roads were quite good - no big hills, some railway form and all rideable. We also all felt good after a good lunch, less hills and cooler weather. The weather cleared up after lunch and was even sunny. We followed the semi permanent mine detour, then on to King Jarrah Form for the last run into the hut at about 5pm.
The falls near the hut are small but flowing really well. We had a look around then back to the hut for a wash, dinner and finally sleep.
What a contrast to Yarri - hardly a bird to be heard, just some very distant rumbling in the middle of the night from the mine. It was drizzling again in the morning, then rain periods as we headed off about 8am. North Junction Form was great - it follows the river and often over looks it. Nanga was quite busy with campers. There was some decent hills, so it was too hot to ride in a rain coat, but too wet not too!
