A variety of tracks to suit all skills can be found from the Zigzags.
Popular with all types of users with walkers, cars, bikes and 4WDs.
Well-formed gravel roads to the major locations of Newnes and Glowworm tunnel. Varying levels of difficulty to suit all abilities can be found. If going far from the main roads, ensure you have suitable communications and recovery equipment.
Did the Glowworm tunnel and Lost City on the 12/7/09.
There had been rain in the area so the track was mainly dry- hard but in dips or parts of the roads in shadow from the trees it was quite wet and pot-holed, so caution needs to be taken when approaching these areas. Minor corrugations in the last 5kms of logging track to Glowworm.
Last time I was there (about 10 years ago) you could drive right up to the rocks at the lost city- now they have boulders at the top of the track just before the descent. This seems a wise move as I would say in the wet some cars may not be able to get back up.
Thanks to the people who had posted GPS co-ords, I felt so much better knowing I had them in my GPS rather than trust my memory from 10 years ago- and yes I would have got lost!!!!

|4107||Spent the day exploring the various tracks in the area. The blackfellows hand track was a lot of fun. There weather conditions proved slow going with significant amounts of ground water on the top of the table land portion of the track. There are some fairly deep holes and the track needs a bit of work in a few areas.... otherwise it was an awsome trip, the stair case and lost city were a worth the trip.||Jeep Wrangler Unlimited||Apr 18, 2009|
