About 17km, 3-4 km being on the 6ft track (fire trail). The track is generally well marked though rough in some places.We’ll be meeting at Cliff Drive then walking along Narrowneck Rd to Farnell’s Rd to the start of the track, stopping at some lookouts on route.

4 MH - Day Walk
Blue Gum Swamp and Grose Head South
The Blue Gum Swamp is lovely area similar to the Blue Gum Forest at Blackheath. We walk begins at Winmallee and follows a fire trail to the Blue Gum Swamp. It is very easy walking. The blue gums are a magnificent sight. A very steep climb on a fire trail takes us up Bee Nest Hill to Grose Mountain LO for excellent views of the Grose Valley. More steep climbing on a rough track brings us to South Grose trig even higher above the valley. After lunch we retrace our route back to the car park. The return trip is around 10 km.

Mt Boyce climbing tracks.
Just north west of Blackheath is a well loved climbing area, and some foot pads to a great cliff line with wide views of the Kanimbla valley.

There are options to explore and or extend the walk to the Browntown climbing/abseiling area which would involve a 2-3km return walk along the railway road. This area hasn’t been burnt. Grade 3M

4 MH - Creek
Upper Hat Hill Creek
Upper Hat Hill Creek at Blackheath is a grade 4 creek walk. It is a good opportunity to enjoy easy walking after the fires and see how the bush is recovering. The walk is only 3 km. It begins on a well formed bush track that takes us to cliffs above Hat Hill Creek. From here we look down on a large cave or amphitheatre. Descending the cliffs is made easier with three fixed ropes used by rock climbers. The descent can be made without using the ropes. Once in the creek we look around the amphitheatre then make our way upstream to Robb Ave. On the way there is some very pleasant creek walking with cliffs, pagodas, pools and small waterfalls. There are some rough sections and we cross the creek several times.Limit 10 people. We all have a responsibility to prevent the spread on COVID19. Many of our members are in the vulnerable age group. On club activities members will practice social distancing at all times. Gloves must be worn for descending the ropes.
