Over the summer months The Arrowsmith 4WD track is open for use, with a 40km round track that takes in the spectacular views over the Cameron Valley and the Arrowsmith Range. You then meander your way over the saddle into the Ashburton Headwaters, stopping at the old musterers’ hut on the way for a rest and a brew of billy tea. The track then follows the Ashburton River with its mighty rapids and steep ravines down around the Ribbonwood Hill and back into the fertile flats of home. The track is bulldozed after winter every year but great care should always be taken while driving on this track, a good four wheel drive truck with mud tyres and an experienced driver is a must.
It is recommended that two trucks drive together, should one get stuck.
