Start & End

Meet us at 10am @ Bowen Mountain Park. We’ll start walking at 10:30am.

Getting here

Bowen Mountain Park is at: 103 Lieutenant Bowen Rd, Bowen Mountain NSW 2753
Google Maps location

The park has a playground and basic public toilets.

Public transport is limited. 


Please join us if you can! Just add your name to the permission form.
If you would rather drop and run, there are many beautiful places to explore in the area, such as Kurrajong village, and fruit-picking capital, Bilpin. Please ensure Sestrychka Tanya has your contact details before you go. Meet us back at the park at 2:30pm.

The track

We will be following the ‘Western Ridge Trail’, from Duffy’s track, just behind the park. It is approx. 3.5km one way, and we’ll be returning via the same path. We’ll have lunch on a rocky outcrop looking out toward Mt Tomah.
There are some small hills as we follow the ridge. It is considered an ‘easy’ grade walk, along a sandy and well-maintained fire trail.
You’ll see lots of beautiful old trees bursting with new growth after the summer fires. It is pretty long though, so bring your resilience!!

Health & Safety

We’ll have a first aid kit and hand sanitiser. Please stay home if you are unwell (even slightly). If you need to cancel last minute, call/text Tanya Karliychuk on 040 9988 377.
