Bush 2: Spice Brook

Sunday, 21 May 2023

Julimar State Forest

This is one of our premier complex spur and gully bush areas with additional rock detail but also a network of watercourses and tracks for the easier courses. Generally, the area is pretty runnable except close to Spice Brook which has a band of thicker vegetation along it. The VE and H5 courses ONLY do not need to cross the creek.
