  • Global Ranking

Largely follows an old goldfields era water-race and is relatively level going as a consequence, though is narrow-ish in places and has a few spots with drop-offs to the side that no-one would want to fall down due to height/steepness involved and resident blackberry bushes!
The couple of rock-garden portions are short in length and not overly technical.

Access Info

At the eastern end it is across the road from the Reservoir carpark located at the junction of Service Basin Road and Service Basin Track.
At the western end there are a couple of entry points on the east side of Jenkins Track located within a few hundred metres after crossing the concrete bridge over 9 Mile Creek.
