A great introductory walk to the Wild Dog Mountains region, with a little of bit everything - Ridges, Steep Downhills, Firetrail, Bouldery Creek Walking, River Crossings and Chest High Nettle. Even though the distance is short, this is a bit of a tough walk as the walking is a bit slow due to the nature of the steep and bouldery terrain. The beach campsite on the Cox's is just fabulous with an abundance of firewood and the walk up towards the Jenolan or Harry's River is just great fun which led to all sorts of antics such as Freezing River Crossings, Horizontal Tree Walking and of course, Rock Skimming. What more could you ask for?
All up it is 13 clicks - if you're fit and fast you'd be able to do it as a day walk in around 5-6 hours. If you're taking novices allow two full days.
I can't quite remember how this all got started, I think I suggested to Anton that he might be able to organise his own DoE walk and soon enough Jason asked Anton if I could organise a Six Foot Track walk. After I had a look at the Six Foot Track walk, I decided that it looked pretty boring as the bulk of it is along firetrail which I generally dislike. It's OK in small doses, but I much prefer less travelled routes in wilderness areas.
