Box Ridge walking track

Moses Rock Road, Cascade, New South Wales 2453


Explore the diversity of the rainforest along Box Ridge walking track. The 1.2 kilometre return journey is mostly flat and suitable for the whole family. Tell the kids to keep their voices down to a whisper, because they may be able to spot lyrebirds, wallabies and even a carpet python along the way. The highlight of this short walk is definitely the huge, ancient brush box trees, but you’ll also see pretty coachwoods and, during summer, the spectacular red flowers of the Dorrigo waratahs. Huge stumps, contrasted with the old-growth trees, are reminders of the bygone logging era. When you reach the end, retrace your steps or join the Mobong walking track heading south to turn this walk into a circuit.
