Take advantage of the side trails to customise this walk, especially if you return to do it again.

Great area for all types of hiking and trail walking. There are a number of side paths for you to make your own route. Lot's of trees and there are a few small streams to help cool down. Super family and pet friendly.

one of my favourites. you can make this into an in and out track or into a loop by switching onto one of the other trails. some parts shaded with incredible vistas and some other parts in the sun. I nice easy trail depending again on how you do it. recently had a fall on a mother mountain and this trail was the perfect one to get back on the proverbial horse so to speak. we wen up the jeep track and climbed a little against the side by the houses and then merged with an blue mountain back track until we hit the jeep track again.
