1.7 km Circuit

76 m

Moderate track
A very nice loop walk in the lower part of the Rumbalara Reserve, Gosford. The walk includes a section of road but spends most time in very nice forest scenery, including pockets of the beautiful rainforest in the reserve. This walk has substantially fewer steps than some of the other walks in the reserve and is a great way to see some of the beautiful scenery in Rumbalara.
