About this track

Description

From the Glentui picnic area this track descends to a bridge over the Glentui River then climbs a ridge on the other side. The first section is steep in places and there are a few major drop-offs before reaching the ridge.

The track links first with Bypass Track, then Richardson Track before returning to the picnic area.

This is a family walk suitable for people of moderate fitness, but good footwear is required.

We recommend walking in an anti-clockwise direction.

Getting there

From Oxford, follow Ashley Gorge Road for 13 km to Glentui. Turn into Glentui Bush Road and follow this for 6 km to the end.

Know before you go

Wasp populations reach high numbers from January to March – wear light-coloured clothing and carry antihistamine cream/tablets as a precaution.
