Description:
Park at the locked gate on the Old Coach Road. Walk to the junction of the Pagoda Track, then head up the cliffs to the plateau top. Head directly to GR 413 189 to relocate the old infrastructure. Then visit Tunnel Point with views over Tunnel Creek and the Wolgan Valley beyond compare at GR 415 189. From this vantage point follow the western cliff edge of Tunnel Creek North. We will check out three possible descent points. If all fail we will descend the known route on the eastern side. Once down in the valley we will follow the base of the cliffs back under Tunnel Point, checking for old infrastructure. Return via the Glowworm Tunnel, the Pagoda Track and then the Old Coach Road back to the vehicles. About 8km, 400m +&-
