Route/Trail Notes:

Take the Little Bald Rock track, 1km down the path you get to a Y Junction indicating Little Bald Rock to your left and Border trails to your right. All route is clearly signposted. 7km down the road from here you have another junction with the options to go up 1km to the Northern Viewpoint to panoramic views of Bald Rock, then backtrack to the junction and carry on to Bald Rock Campsite.


National Park entry fee applies (2023 = $8 per vehicle/day). Park entry fees and camping permits can only be purchased online from National Parks NSW. The campgrounds are just behind the car park.

Other References/Commets:

Not very popular walk, we did not meet any another person and it was during the Labour Day weekend. A LOT of mosquitoes in October.


Really enjoyed this 14km walk - it's a super pleasant stroll through varying landscapes - predominantly tall gum forests. The track is very well maintained and comfortably soft under foot. A good walk to stretch the legs without having to push through hectic hills - it's a pretty easy day out and just perfect if you feel the need to get some distance in the legs without having to exert huge amounts of energy. There's an 18km walk that starts from the same place here in Bald Rock - it's called the "Carrolls Creek" walk - if you feel you need an extra 4km. Bald Rock National Park is sensational - situated around 27km from Tenterfield on a very well maintained, sealed road. What a beautiful part of the world this is!!
