Duncans Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 912m above the sea level, located in the Blue Mountains, in New South Wales, Australia.
The road to the summit is gravel. It’s called Narrow Neck Plateau Trail. It’s a fire trail. Only 4wd vehicles. The surface on this gravel road is often loose, especially along the sides of the road. Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared.
Located within the Blue Mountains National Park, the road is very steep and narrow. The last part of the climb is closed to vehicles, with a locked gate. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
