The Six Foot Track is usually a 3 day overnight 44km hiking challenging. We ll do that another time!
On this day trip, we have chosen to walk the scenic section from Megalong Valley Road to the Cox River (Swing Bridge) and return. A 12km hike winding through heritage sites, heath, streams and woodlands.
We ll stop plenty of times along the way and enjoy a rest break at the river for a morning tea/brunch.
A basic/good level of fitness is required for this hike, meaning feeling comfortable on your feet is a good idea. We take regular breaks, stop often for photos and rests and support each other. We suggest bringing your hiking poles for extra support if you have unsteady knees or hips.
If driving from Sydney please allow roughly 3 hours to reach Blackheath and drive down into the Megalong Valley. If you arrive earlier you can relax at the Tea Rooms while waiting for the group. Click on this link to view the meeting location.
Please contact us at women want email@example.com if you have any questions about this day hike.
We look forward to hiking the Six Foot Track with you.
