Description

This track is well formed with farm gates at each end. However, there are no signposts and there are many possum trapper's tracks leading off the main track so take care not to go the wrong way.

The track starts about 300 metres uphill of where the Camp Elsdon track joins the main 4WD Colonial Knob track. Cross the gate and take the track leading slightly to the right across the grass and uphill into the bush between the bracken. The track is slightly overgrown in places, but wide and following to the end of the bush is quite easy. The track end with a gate at the fenceline where the bush meets the farmland looking west.

Return the same way to rejoin the Colonial Knob track.

Getting there
