3 Parks Panorama

Sun 2 Jun 2024

Walk name/location
3 Parks Panorama
Walk grade
Trail Walker
Description

The Three-parks Panorama. We meander through the walking trails of Cox Scrub Conservation Park and a steady climb to Ridge Road. Some road walking takes us to our first crossing of the Finniss River before climbing up to and through the Finniss Conservation Park. From there it’s on to the Mount Magnificent Conservation Park. If the weather is good and the legs willing, we will have lunch on the summit.  The return journey starts with a long, steady meander down Cole Crossing Road and on to our second crossing of the Finniss River (this one might mean wet feet?). Re-entering Cox Scrub Conservation Park we use more walking trails back to the car park.

This is a long and testing walk – for experienced trail walkers only.

Your walk leader is Dean Mortimer. Please call him as your first option if you have any issues on 0428 557 757. If no answer, then second option is to text a message.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
