Dashwood Gully to Mylor
A picturesque walk through gently undulating farmlsnd and the northern blocks of Kuitpo Forest. The trail normally passes through the historic Jupiter Goldfields, however due to storm damage a re-route now bypasses them.
Overall, while a quite long walk it is a relatively comfortable walk with no real hills, a far cry from the next few sections of the trail which will provide more testing hills for us to enjoy.
