This walk follows two loops within the area surrounding Helensburgh and visits iconic areas such as Wilson Creek Dam, Historic Crawley Road ( no traffic) Old railway tunnels and more. Great walking along seldom walked tracks and a short section of off-tack with lots of Lillies and Angophoras. Easily walked as two separate loop, if you want a shorter option, as the Helensburgh Railway Station is at the midpoint. The track follows well-worn paths, fire trails and a short distance of road walking. The off-track section is predominantly for a short climb up hill in the second loop, although on this recording there was an earlier section of off-track to avoid the mud! The gpx. includes the turn off to explore the old rail tunnel and will take you close to the entrance – if it’s not too boggy and you wish to walk inside it continue on and then retrace your tracks to rejoin the route.
