The Ewen Maddock Dam trail is a wide gravel path that generally follows the waters edge from the carpark at Glenview around to the township of Landsborough. It is a shared trail used by birdwatchers, walkers, trail runners, horse rides and mountain bikers.

The vegetation is beautiful and is generally flat riding with the occasional spot to take an optional detour up and down a hill.

It can be used to form a loop when combined with the Dularcha railway tunnel trail or the Ferny Forest trails but you will have to use nearby roads to join it all up.

Access Info

There is a small carpark at the Landsborough end but the main entry point is at the Glenview end with parking, toilets, playground and swimming area available.
