About this hike

This two day adventure in the Dharug National Park isn’t the most scenic of walks but offers two great days of hiking in nature. The overnight campsite at Ten Mile Hollow has quite good facilities for those hikers looking for a little more of those comforts and the track is well marked and relatively easy to follow.
