Description

From the Car Park simply follow the track which is signposted up the coach stream route. There is a creek crossing before you go over a stile and head up the farm track, up some steep grades at times which can be a leg and lung killer. The track runs around to some beech forest then turn left at the crossing to head over the tops to the trig station.
Drink in the views and retrace your steps.
