August 2021 –
This is a quick stroll if you just want to get out of town (round trip walk 1.5 hours and you’re done!), and it’s a level 0 on the hardness scale (beginner friendly) because it’s all on a fire trail.
A bonus is the fantastic start spot of Hardings Paddock Picnic Area (complete with loads of grass, a dam and ducks), plus the camp ground there let’s you plan a stay and do a bit of slow exploring of the area.. Or, take your mountain bike and have some real fun! The tracks are all MTB friendly.
It’s pretty well signposted and the gist of it is easy to grasp anyway.
We went up around Rocky Knoll then continued onto Goolmans – it honestly doesn’t matter which way around you do it.
