Hard track
Starting from the end of Verrierdale Forest Road, Eumundi, this walk takes you on a circuit in the northern side of Eumundi Conservation Park via Blacknutt, Figbird and Ironbark tracks. Expect a quiet hike along wide trails that are usable by mountain bikers and horse riders as well. The area has a tranquil feel to it and serves as a wildlife refuge. Cedar, pine and beech trees used to be cut here and milled in two different sawmills, from the late 1800s to 1996. It was later declared a conservation park, preserving the precious fauna and flora. Keep in mind that the signage is spotty and the track may be overgrown in parts. Try to come under dry conditions as it can get muddy easily. 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.
