Description

This is the main northern entrance to the Belmont Regional Park.

There is a 200m altitude difference between the ends of this track. Parts of the track are quite steep, with a grade of up to 12%, though the overall grade is much less.

For most of its length the track surface is gravel and hard-packed clay, with the occasional grassy section.

Getting there

For the northern end, turn off State Highway 58 (Haywards Hill Road) and go up Belmont Road to where the seal ends. This is a narrow road - barely one lane - so watch out for traffic in the other direction. Belmont Road continues up the hill in the form of a farm road.

The southern end of Belmont Road is at an intersection with Hill Road and Duck Creek, by the gas station.

Other notes

Along the way the track passes several World War II bunkers that were used for storing ammunition.
