Starting at Ourimbah Valley Trackhead, walk into Hidden Valley along the dirt road, following a trail beside Ourimbah Creek to Stringy Bark Point. This is a mossy area with many ferns near a wide, sandy section of Ourimbah Creek. A bit further on, the track crosses Ourimbah Creek and continues up the ridge to Tooheys Road. After turning off the old Tooheys Rd, the Great North Walk leads along a narrow track and across the mossy and delightful Dead Horse Creek. The track then meanders through a heath and scribbly gum forest to Cherry Lane. After about a 1.5km road walk, you will come to the GNW trackhead on Great Rd, at the start of the Bumble Hill Dray track.
