Lapstone Bridge ZigZag walk is a 2km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs to complete.


This walk is more about history than the bush but it still gives great views. The walk explores a small section of the old Lapstone Zig Zag railway (not to be confused with the more famous Lithgow Zig Zag railway). You will walk where the tracks once stood through sandstone cuttings passing an old train station to the famous Knapsack Viaduct (bridge).
