Mt. Cargill Walking track

The true left hand side tracks can be accessed by riding up the lower section of the Mt. Cargill Walking track and then branching off the track into the forest. Alternatively, you can keep climbing up the Mt Cargill walking track, over Lindsay Creek bridge; climbing for a couple of hundred meters until to reach a skidder track on your left just after a steep pitch and second footbridge.

From here the Mt. Cargill Walking Track is strictly a walking track so don't climb up any further.

You traverse across the hill on a muddy skid track to the top of the gravel road, head down the road looking out for the entrance of the Haggis Hunter on your left (a Road Cone marks the entrance). The gravel road is on private land so please respect the landowner by not traveling down any further.
