This walk starts at 850m and finishes at 350m but there are up and down sections on the way. This track is significant for many reasons, it was used by the Widjabul people and is said the Cleverman could be found at Dirangah Rocks, which are impressive eroded volcanic vents. It was also used as the old Postmans Track from Nimbin to Murwillumbah. Along the way you will see; many forest types, magnificent vistas of the tweed caldera and the old postmans tree (where he used to sleep on his journey). You will have lunch your locally sourced lunch on the track. The hike finishes at Rummery park which is a 2 minute drive from Nightcap Ridge.
If 19km is too much for you we can offer you an alternative 5 km (2 hours) Boggy Creek Walk. This walk will start at Rummery Park, where you will follow the creek all the way to Minyon Falls, then head back to along the escarpment on the eastern boundary trail back to Rummery Park.
