The track descends into a snaking dry river bed, making for some pretty exciting driving. Towards the end of this section, the track winds its way in and out and up and down the rounded, hard river banks. It’s referred to as the Obstacle Route. Be careful in this play area: Take the wrong line here and you could end up damaging your vehicle or even rolling it.

The 4×4 Obstacle Route can only be driven when dry, as it follows the bed of a small river that feeds one of the adjacent dams. It provides for some cross axle situations and ends with a steep ascent onto the adjacent embankment.

This short section is in close proximity to the Camp Site.

After the occurrence of a unique photographical opportunity, one of these uphill sections has appropriately been nicknamed Suicide Hill.
