Route/Trail notes

Begin the walk at The Copeland Tops Picnic Area.  Walk up the hill and when the track branches to the left, take this path to walk through the hidden treasure track first. Follow the track to the left again when you reach an intersection, as otherwise you may miss the mine. You will come to an intersection where there are options to go back to the car park or to complete the Basin Loop Track.  Take this path which will take you up the hill. Some parts are quite steep and a little loose. You will come to a NPWS service 4wd track.  Turn right here.  It will take you up to the road.  Turn right again, and shortly you will see another service road to the right that will take you back down the hill along the old Copeland Rd.

Comments

We walked this track in the opposite direction. I'm not sure if it was better or worse that way. It was quite hot, and the track up Copeland Road was over 3km long and continually up hill. It wasn't as steep as the walk back though which possibly also had more shade.
