    Also good on a MTB!

  • Give this trek a miss, and definitely don’t bother on foot. Quite a dull 4 hour walk with very few views. The entire second half of the walk is on dirt roads with no real atmosphere.

    The “sculptured” mailboxes are just generic rickety old mailboxes, and there’s nowhere to properly stop for lunch as the entire second half of the walk is along roads (so you can sit directly on the side of the road and that’s about it).

    If you’re lucky, the first half of the walk could surprise you with Echidnas (we spotted 3).
