Runner Notes

From the Boulder Hill summit, stick to the right until you find the white trail marker. In bad weather or mist, it is easy to miss.

Description

This track is sometimes called Murphy's.

This is a steep 200m+ climb or descent, depending if you are coming down from the summit of Boulder Hill or up from Belmont Road or Belmont Road Farm. The trail is along a rough farm track and across open paddock. For much of its length, the track is ill-defined, though the orange markers provide sufficient guidance.

In case the climb isn't hard enough, after a particularly steep section that goes straight up a grassy hill, the track drops down a bit before the final ascent to the summit.

At the southern start of the track it drops down to a saddle point that is also the northern end of Kilmister Track.
