Want to head down to Mt Annan on Saturday, but beat the heat and get down early. I know the opening hours of the place are 10-5, but this was when there was an entry fee. I know there is now no entry fee, does this mean the gates are always left open and i can still get in?
They talk about "Friends of the Garden" having access at any time which seems like some sort of membership. Given i live in the city I'm not really interested in this. I just want to go for a ride before it gets hot.
Will I have any problems? Can I drive in and park, or will i need to park outside and ride in?
FWIW, only allowing mountain biking during the hottest time of the day in summer is just ridiculous!

If you are "friends of the garden" you can park outside the grounds & ride in, but no night riding allowed.
If you don't have friends of the garden membership, its not recommended to ride in there outside of the 10-5 opening hours
as the rangers will more than likely stop you & ask to see your proof of membership.
I rarely ride Annan during the summer because of the 10am-5pm rule.
Now that OMV in hornsby is open, it is a better option than Mt Annan for Early morning, late afternoon riding during the summer heat.
Better features & riding (AT) OMV also, just the track is a bit short in its current stage of development, but you just do more laps.
