Head into the bush and take a left pretty early on. Follow all the short detours (1-way) to view some historical items, then come back to the main track. Lots of interesting things to see along the way. Very well signposted route the whole way around. Hard to get lost!

I did it!
  • Access

    On SH3, just out of Midhirst on the Inglewood side, turn up York Road (towards the mountain). Keep going until you come to the dead end (gravel road). Don't turn into the quarry!

    You will need a car to get there. Some parking available there. Take your valuables with you.

    14 km

    14 minutes



  • Staying Safe


    Perfect throughout.

    Short-sleeved thermal top, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    No water available en-route

    I went in October, and the trails were non-existent, just streams! So if you like keeping your feet dry, this probably isn't the trail for you!

    Be careful navigating through the streams as the stream beds are naturally a bit uneven and rocky
