Getting there

This walk begins at JC Slaughter Falls Picnic Area, to the left of the driveway, about a quarter of the way along


Route/Trail notes

This track is quite wide and well kept.  It is of an uphill grade from JC Slaughter Falls Picnic Area to the Summit where there is a cafe and gift shop.  There are mild humps all the way along, probably for the benefit of bike riders.  You can choose to return either by the same route or by the Summit trail which heads back from the same place at the top and returns to the far end of the picnic area.


No costs required.

Walked this trail on the way down after the summit trail. Easy walk, nice and peaceful. Only saw a handful of people around, though I was there during the day on a Monday.

We descended from the summit via this track (after doing the aboriginal art trail and summit track). It’s a wide dirt track. The kids were pleased for the loose gravel under foot as a change from the well trodden summit track. But do be careful not to slip on any loose dry areas. Otherwise it’s an easy track to descend.

We took this one on the way down from doing the Summit track. It was a really pleasant way to go back. There were lots of people there and everyone was so lovely. I wouldn't take my dog though as a few people have their dogs walk without leads.

Walked back on Mahogany after walking up to Summit from JC Slaughter Falls on the Summit Trail. Easy walk. Pleasant couple of hours all up with a coffee at the Summit Cafe.

Would be a bit boring on its own but combined with the Summit Trail makes a nice walk

It was way too hot for doing this walk today. We were so grateful for the cafe at the Summit to pick up an ice block and cold drink. We took the Summit Trail on the way back.
