This section of the trail has been extensively re-routed due to the Bangor fires of Jan/Feb 2014 - check the re-routes page on this website. This section starts in the Wirrabara pine forest with there are some testing climbs. After leaving the forest the rest of the day is spent walking along back roads and road reserves through undulating farmland.
