Getting there

This National Park can be accessed from either Kyogle or Murwillumbah. Follow the signs from either the Summerland Way north of Kyogle via Wiangaree or the Murwillumbah-Kyogle Rd. The park is 38km west of Murwillimbah and 28km north of Kyogle. Both campsites are located on the Tweed Range Scenic Route. Some roads are gravel.

Route/Trail notes

Start this walk from either Sheepstation Creek Campsite or Forest Tops Campsite. Forest Tops is much higher than Sheepstation Creek, so the walk from Forest Tops is much easier than in the opposite direction. A additional loop track to Brushbox Falls branches off this track 900m from Sheepstation Creek. About a third over the way along from Sheepstation Creek is the rosewood Loop - another additional track. Part of the path on the Forest Tops Acton is along a disused forest road.  The path is clearly marked, though in some places hard to see due to the amount of leaf litter. 

Permits/Costs

THere I see an $8 per day vehicle fee.

Comments

Lovely walk, beautiful trees and close to nature feeling. But the track is quite over grown, there are fallen trees across the teacj and the track is not obvious and hard to follow at times, so be prepared to back track.

Hubby and I loved this walk but the track was poorly visible at times. If you are doing it return, leave a car at both forest tops and sheepstation creek and walk from sheepstation creek, easier to come down the hill on return.

We walked from Forest Tops and then back again. You don't notice how far you're going down until you'r climbing back up. The part along the unused roadway is quite overgrown. Walking early in the morning our shoes got wet through, though it was dry when we returned. In a lot of places the path is quite uneven with lots of roots along the path.
