Did you have directions or been there before?
Went with people who'd done it before.

The Spanish Steps are located on the No 5 Firetrail which runs between Sunnyside Ridge Road and Blackfellows Hand Trail.
Here's the GPS Coords S33 19.106' E150 09.511'

I traveled from east to west, not sure how'd you go going the other way.

Re: WK2 Offroad

Gardens of Stone and Newnes was a lot of fun. We had to turn around on the Bicentennial Trail just before the rock ledge due to a massive tree blocking the road with no way around.
We tried to cut it up but the little Stihl just couldnt do it.
We then went down Black Fellows Hand Trail and Number 5 fire trail (Spanish Steps) to attempt them from the Blackfellows Trail side but were a bit worried going down the last one with all the loose rocks and various cars so decided it was best to turn around

Here is a video from the Gardens of Stone Bog hole, was resonably firm and a bit of fun.

Re: WK2 Offroad

Love it! I want to get mine into a little water also. But there's not much of that where I am in California.

Thanks for that video.

That video is listed as private so others are unable to view, might need an update?

Re: WK2 Offroad

Hey off-roaders, have any of you had issues with water getting into the headlights on your 2014-up WK2?

Went for a splash through some puddles yesterday, gave it a wash this morning, then later noticed a fair amount of condensation inside each of the housings.

Had thought these would be a sealed unit, and given I could take a holiday for what they'd cost to replace if they failed, I'm keen to care for the lights I have 😎


Cheers, Simon
