Resurrecting this post - has anyone been to Western, Syds or Mother Cummings Peak tracks via Westrope Rd since the storms we had recently? My chainsaw is currently out of action. :roll: Thanks for any info.

I’ve got one you can borrow Tortoise. I’m in Launceston. Not sure about the road sorry.

That's very generous indeed, Rexy! Thanks for the offer.
We have a damper forecast for this arvo now, the friend I'm taking would rather wait for a better day, understandably. By then I should have mine back. :)

Very little damage in that area. Did Syds Western creek circuit a few weeks ago and barely stepped over a sapling. There was a report on the parks website of a tree blocking the Mother Cummings track but we didn't go that far.
