Welcome to Section & Clydesdale

Heading northeast from Holywell, the road drops steeply toward the hamlet of Section and then curls its way down to Buff Bay, 29km north (sometimes impassible due to landslips. A turnoff to the right at Section leads 1.5km to the ridge crest, where the main road loops south and drops to Content Gap, eventually linking up with the road from Gordon Town to Mavis Bank.

From Section take the horrendously potholed road south towards Guava Ridge; the turnoff for Clydesdale is about 1km above the hamlet of St Peters. Then you will cross over the Chestervale Bridge above the Brook’s River and take the left, steeply uphill road at the Y-fork. It’s a terribly rocky drive, suitable for a 4WD only.
