Intended to separate uphill traffic outbound from Castle Hill Village from downhill inbound, this purpose built track is an enjoyable and family-friendly ride up through the Thomas Bush beech forest, bringing you out higher on Long Spur with stunning views from there across the Castle Hill Basin.
Forms part of a great short 40-min loop ride from Castle Hill Village.

Access Info

Park at the carpark at the Castle Hill Village end of the Hogs Back Track, head 50 metres up the Water Intake road past the downhill exit from the original Hogs Back Track. Follow your nose...
