Box Vale Tramway Trail is a 4.5km, grade 2 One Way hike located in Country NSW and ACT New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

Visit this former railway line used to transport coal from the Natti Region to the main southern line at Mittagong.

Travelling from the south, turn off the F6  Hume Freeway at the Mittagong sign.  This will exit you onto the old Hume Highway at Welby.   Directly opposite this intersection proceed along a dirt road. After 100 meters bear left at a small roadway entrance marked  Box Vale Walking Track or similar. You will now enter a well defined car parking area at the trail head and be in what is known as the Mt Alexander Reserve.

In June 2011 there was no toilet or water provided at this trail head. The Trail commences downhill at a location interprative sign. Take your own water on this journey.
