Track Description

This track starts on the Gundy Road, Scone (Black Top) and continues out through Gundy, Moonan before turning left at the T intersection onto Hunter Road, towards Elleston Station (Kerry Packer\'s Property). The road turns from black top to gravel, following the course of the Hunter River, where we turn Right onto Tomalla Road and start the climb into the Barrington Tops. 

There are spectacular views back over the valley, as the climb takes up up over 1200 metres. Crossing Little Hunter Stream, before turning right onto Pheasant Creek Road.  The GPS track follows Pheasant creek Road, before turning left just over a cattle grid, which then follows an unused track around onto Boggy Swamp Trail.

If you dont want to follow this, continue on following Pheasant Creek trail, left onto Thunderbolts Trail, which will bring you out onto Boggy Swamp Trail.  Continuing on, turn left onto Dilgry Cirle, driving towards Gummi Falls, Gummi Trail.  This track leads you back down to the Manning River, crossing the Gummi Falls Bridge, with a spectacular water hole.  A short walk upstream, along a walking track will give you a view of Gummi Falls.

Continuing along Gummi Trail, turn left onto Water Gauge Trail, just prior to the road branching left and right. This track will take you down to the Water gauge camp site.(Low range is recommended) Once at the bottom, there are several camp sites right on the Manning river with good fishing to be had.

On leaving, follow Gummi Trail back to Pheasants Creek Road, continuing out to the main Forrest Trail across the Barrington Tops (Barrington Tops Forrest Trail), turning left towards Gloucester or Right towards Scone.

4735 pretty easy stuff on the main roads, some more difficult less used tracks to be found, muddy rutted bog holes and some steep and slippery tracks, if exploring the off the main road tracks/logging tracks dont go alone!just incase and use a gps tracker as there are a lot of unmarked, disused tracks.
