About this track

Description

Start next to Leishmans Stream, about 4 km down Silverstream Valley Rd. From the DOC sign climb up past Leishmans Falls.

The track is very steep going to reach the trig on top of Powder Hill and not for the faint-hearted.

Either return the way you came or carry on north, down the hill to the end of Silverstream Valley Rd and back along the gravel road through the locked gate.

Getting there

Start next to Leishmans Stream, about 4 km down Silverstream Valley Rd.
