  • Easy / pleasant drive out from Mudgee. Signage is questionable as you arrive - but road improvements going may have something to do with this. No amenities at the trail head or mapping. Pretty...

  • Flat, level walk for 90% of the track. Good for beginners. A bit uneventful but would be good on a bike or if you had a pram. The last section of the walk requires some climbing but well worth it for the view. The track is 4km and you have to wall back along the same way you came.
  • Yes the Castle Rocks walk is a pleasant trail through the bush and a great view at the end. However I was unable to find a path at the actual reserve to try and see some of the local birdlife.
