The City of Wanneroo created an easement agreement for the track with private landowners Tokyu Group and Capricorn Investment Group in 2008.

It was established as a beach access track to allow surfers and fishers to get closer to the beach and surf break north of the Two Rocks townsite.

Although not its intended or permitted use, the track was also used by off-road drivers to access the Wilbinga Conservation Park and beaches.

Last month, the council decided the safety risks were too high to continue to maintain the track and decided to close it on January 15.
