Route/Trail notes

This trail starts from the Mill Road gate along Pullen Creek Break in riparian rainforest and follows the creek for a short distance before turning right and crossing Pullen Creek. Look for small birds as they often drink from the small pool upstream from the creek crossing. It’s only upwards from here for several hundred metres passing through dry eucalypt forest. Turn right onto Tower Break when reaching the intersection where it leaves Centre Road. After doubling back around a sharp corner, look for a track to your immediate right. There is an opportunity to take in excellent views from a clearing to the South–West. This can be found by walking a short distance past the turn-off to a clearing on the hill below the power lines.

Return the way you came, and continue at the corner along the right-hand circuit in an anti-clockwise direction downhill. Beware, the descent is very steep, walkers require good agility to negotiate this section of the trail.

Once at the bottom turn left. Here the trail follows the creek to the next major intersection. Turn left onto Powerline Road. Follow this winding road uphill and onto Centre Road veering left and following the road until the next intersection of Tower Break and Centre Road. This completes the loop section of this walk. From this intersection head downhill along Centre Road, cross Pullen Creek and follow the trail to the left along Pullen Creek Break back to the Mill Road gate.

Comments

We ran this with our COVID masks on, very hilly and hard to breath with the masks! We took a wrong turn for a bit so ended up doing 10kms. It took about 1 hour 30 with some walking . Good workout.
