From Graveyard Gully this trail follows an old bridle path that transported coal to the gold mining dredges 1890s-1930s. There are historic tailings and Chinese miners shelters including Mary Lee's three room dwelling.
You can bike to Butchers Point, beyond Leaky Lodge the track becomes rough, less defined and exposed in some places.
Mineshafts and Tunnels: There are old and very deep mining shafts throughout this area. Extreme care must be taken and children closely supervised.
Weather extremes: Due to the harsh nature of the country and the threat of changeable conditions, care should be taken in this area. The climate can swing to either extreme in the course of a day. In winter the ranges are blanketed in snow, a complete contrast to the low humidity and very hot conditions of summer. Prepare for these extremes with suitable clothing, footwear and equipment.
