Runner Notes

Muddy, brushy, and with some dodgy footing, this route does not offer great running.

Description

From the Pipeline Track, this route heads uphill through native forest along a sometimes-muddy path. Though the climbing isn't steep, the footing is sometimes slippery and awkward. The grade relaxes near the bushline and the path contours over Burns Creek to Burns Saddle. Here the Rustlers Ridge Track crosses at a 4-way intersection. Heading straight, the Burns Track descends to Ferguson's Creek, and there are several quite muddy and wet sections. The path eventually ends at the Swampy Ridge (North) Track.
