Basin campsite to Watagan Valley is a 13km, grade 4 One way hike located in Olney State Forest Watagan State Forest New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 6 hrs to complete.

Summary

This varied walk travels north through the Watagans. Leaving the Basin campsite behind the walk traverses the Wollombi Brook via the Lyrebird trail. The Wollombi Brook Pool is a great spot to stop (and take a swim) on a hot day. From the pool the walk climbs into the Warrawolong Flora Reserve using a combination of bush tracks and dirt roads. Along the way a side trip to Mt Warrawolong offers views on the way to the highest point in the area. This walk finishes by descending into the beautiful Watagan Valley.
