Starting from the car park on Glenelg River Road, Glenisla, this return walk takes you to Paddy Castle and back. This walk is for the adventurous spirits as there are different rock formations throughout the walk. The walk is relatively short, but there are steep sections towards the middle and the end. After you climb the rocks to reach the peak, the end of the walk offers you panoramic views of the area and the dense forest in front of the mountain ranges. The rocks on the track can be slippery and sharp. Therefore, you might want to wear appropriate footwear such as hiking shoes. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
