Yellow Cat Trail

Yellow Cat Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail is the longer version of Southeast #21: Yellow Cat Road. It duplicates Yellow Cat Road for a short stretch along The Poison Strip, but it also includes some sections of rougher trail at either end, and it passes by other mines and points of interest. In dry weather, this trail is suitable for a high-clearance vehicle, although some sections of the trail can be very loose and sandy in extremely dry weather, making 4WD preferable.

Special Attractions: Uranium mining remains around The Poison Strip; Longer, more remote version of Yellow Cat Road; Access to many remote 4WD trails. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
