“A farm road from the top of the sealed part of Belmont Road to the top of Hill Road.”— Jonathan Moulds
There is a 200m altitude difference from start to the end of this track. Parts of the track are quite steep, with a grade of up to 12%, though the overall grade is less. The track merges with Boulder Hill Tramping Track continuing up the hill to Duck Creek East.
Along the way, the track passes several World War II bunkers that were used for storing ammunition.
For most of its length, the track surface is gravel and hard-packed clay, with the occasional grassy section.
