1.3 km Circuit

38 m

Easy track
This lovely walk is a great way to explore the bushland at the top of Kincumber Mountain. From near the main picnic area, you follow a clear track before walking along the base of a long rock wall. There are a few sandstone caves, the main one mentioned in the notes is quite large, and a nice cool spot on a hot day. This walk then heads past the cave to loop back to the start via the Yanina Walk management trail. There are good wildflower displays in spring and summer.
