Summary

A narrow trail takes you over moderate slopes and through lovely pink gum, grey box and sheoak bushland. Enjoy the winter and spring floral displays, including stunning orchids. You will see some ruins, get great views of the gorge, and get a good workout.

The Echidna Hike begins from a small roadside carpark at Gate 12 on Piggott Range Road. It’s easy to combine this hike with the adjacent Nature Hike into a 7km hike.
