Turn left into woods just before fallen tree (see photos) and turn right when you meet old forest path. Turn right when you come out onto main vehicle track and then first left to cut across to edge of forest. Up boneshaker and turn right at top. Left at bottom of rough track to Three Rock and keep right as you follow this, past the aerials and through a series of turns, almost to the open mountain / forest corner (see photos). Turn right just before forest corner onto a very narrow track and then take next left onto a track that almost brings you to Two Rock, the turn-around point. Back the same way.
