About the Trail
The distances for the various sections are:
- Neaves Road to Moitch Campsite: 10.4km
- Moitch campsite to Perry Road; 6.0
- Perry Road to Ridge's Campsite: 13.9km
- Ridges Campsite to Shapcott's Campsite: 15.6km

The vegetation provides colourful wildflower displays over winter and spring. The track is sandy underfoot and has extensive sections without tree cover. Trail bike riders often use the track, contributing to its degradation and vigilance is required.
The overnight shelters are three sided, with a rainwater tank, toilet and fire ring. It is possible that there may be no water in the tanks. Check with the ranger.
