A 5km shared trail that starts off easy then head straight up the range before doing a loop coming back down again. Quite steep at times and rocky / gravel track. Does provide some nice views of Mt Philip and Glen Rock as you get higher up.

My watch said that this walk was 7.2km and took about 2.5hours but we took the steep incline pretty slowly. The views are lovely and the first couple of kms get the heart started before easing off and heading back down returning to the car.

Great walk, well signed. Didn’t see anyone the whole way which we loved.

Highest part of the loop is a saddle: looked like the peaks either side would not have been too complex if you had time, although off-track (raining and had a shoe blow out the day we did this walk!).

A bit steep and scrabbly in parts: fun for adults but younger kids would struggle.

Nice workout on this loop, requires some fitness as some steep sections. Rewarded with great views of the other side of the range.
