I first went there  more than 40 years ago .  I put my 3 inch dredge   in , that I had built  , floating  on 2 tractor tubes .  I got some gold  but not a lot .   Mainly went for long week ends .  

I went back again  about 3 years ago and I was distressed  to see  what a mess the place was .   The 4 wheel drivers  had wrecked that area .   They do not stay on the tracks but  like to make  there own . Racing up any hill .
Another place that has been wrecked by the 4 wheel drivers is  Oallen  Ford .  The council has been forced to put large rocks  to stop them  racing up the hills .

The point of my message is that the 4 wheel  drivers cause  more  damage than gold fossickers     This needs to be pointed  out to  the law makers .....

When I was camped there , a guy woke me up about 2 a.m. He was just having a 4 wheel drive up the Turon River !
