A delightful trail, running through lush rainforest to the site of the Magnet Mine. The mine site has good places to camp and relics to explore. The trail begins 1.75km west of Waratah at the local tip. The trail follows the route of the former Magnet Tramway, built in 1901 to carry silver-lead ore from the Magnet Mine.
