Diversion

Bypass to the “challenging” section coming into Logue Brook Dam. When you came off Cowna Rd you can follow the Scarp road to Logue Brook dam on the road on the map that follows the lake. It is about 450 m from where the MB turns right off Scarp Rd to where this bypass turns right (there is a LBD sign there). It shows as Blackburn Rd on my GPS, and is unnamed but does appear on the MB map. If you carry straight on Scarp Rd you go to the caravan park/café via the east side of Lake Brockman via a gravel road. This “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 indicating LBD and a few other signs with maps, restrictions, etc. After 900m 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 600 m, where it rejoins the MB. Total diversion 1.95 km. Do orientate your map to the ground and follow the lake edge if you take this route.
