The first section of this walk follows the dirt road to a communications tower, before passing another lookout with expansive valley views. From here it starts the steep descent along a rocky track, passing a grove of grasstrees. It then follows a grassy trail and powerlines before a last narrow track leads down and across the road at Heaton Gap.
