Getting there

This track begins at a car park on a side track 1.5km before the Mount Allyn lookout at the end of the Mount Allyn Forest Road.  Most of the roads in this area don't have signs so take care. Follow Salisbury Road, from Dungog, taking care when the road turns left not to continue straight ahead to Chichester Dam. Follow this road all the way until it turns to dirt.  At this point, there is a choice of three dirt roads that you can take.  Take the one on the left which is William's Top Road.  There is a sign but it's not easy to see.  Follow this until it turns sharply to the left.  You could easily take the side road here leading to The Corker Track as it goes straight ahead, but this is the wrong road.  Take the bend and follow it just about all the way.  You will see a picnic area with an unusually picnic table on the left.  The track begins here.  If you reach a T intersection, go back about 400 meters.

Route/Trail notes

Beginning at the car park, walk this track in a clockwise direction to avoid a steep ascent. After the track divides you will first pass a very large strangler fig which has lost two of it's three upper branches.  There are some really large logs lying around.  The track winds around, eventually taking you to the river, and back to your car.

Comments

This was a nice easy walk, and the spot at the river was very pleasant. It would be a great place for a swim on a hot day.
