Thanks, gotcha.
It's just that I've never seen an open, "functioning" one...but tripped over them in the most unlikely places.

I've been through those roads near Riddells Creek - Mount Charlie Road, Kent Rd, etc.

Mount Charlie road does indeed get bad in the wet -- I've turned back before when encountering very deep mud.

Despite what google thinks, Kent Rd does *not* make it through to anything else. It just comes to a dead stop in the middle of a forest. And that's after dealing with some seriously rutted tracks.

Mount Tenerife Road is blocked, as is Mt Kent Road.

All in all, massive fail for google maps in that forest. Can I ask that you use the feedback option on gmaps to report them? If enough people do, eventually the data might change to reflect the truth...

Gap Road and Cherokee Road are good though!
