Starting from the car park at the end of Pincham Road, Warrumbungle, this return walk takes you to the Fans Horizon lookout atop the Balgatan Mountain and back via a singular track. 1000 steps for one of the best sunrises/sunsets you’ll ever see. This is what this journey is all about. Relatively short but quite intense, this track features exceptional views over the Grand High Tops, letting you inspect the uniquely shaped mountains and volcanic rock spires from the sandstone cliffs of Balgatan Mountain. If you manage to pull your head down and stop looking at the lovely scenery, you may spot some interesting wildflowers such as golden wattles and orchids. Come in spring to maximise your chance of seeing multiple species. Early mornings are a great way to avoid the crowd and the heat. A moderate level of fitness is recommended as a thousand steps should not be underestimated. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
