A shorter alternative to the Kowmung River trip. Heading out along the Kanangra Walls Road, turn right onto Mt. Emperor FireTrail. Head straight through two intersections and then turn right onto Ben Lomond Firetrail where signposted. This track soon descends steeply down Surprise Ridge and Hughes Spur to the Hollanders River. Hollanders River turns into Kowmung River after joining with Tuglow Rivers a few k\'s downstream. The final descent to the creek is particularly steep. My dash clinometer says it is 35 degrees at steepest point. At the bottom, there is a clearing by the River. Can fish or camp here. There is a shallow ricer crossing, then you drive up around the back of some farming properties, take a few right hand turns and eventually you reach Tuglow Road. Turn right here and then follow signs back to Jenolan Caves or Oberon.
