Megalong Rd to Bowtells Swing Bridge is a 12.6km, grade 4 Return hike located in New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5 hrs 30 mins to complete.
Starting from Megalong Rd this walk will take you past the historic Megalong Cemetery and then through some farmland as you wander along private dirt roads on part of the Six Foot Track. Just shy of 1km into the walk you will then follow a track as it crosses the Guyvey Bridge and meanders through the pleasant open farmland with views of the distant escarpment. In time the walk leaves the farms and explores the more dense forest and granite boulders before coming to the granite carved Coxs River. There is a chance to explore the river up close or take a bird’s-eye view from the swing bridge. The tracknotes also describe a side trip to the Six Foot Track lodge great if you want to stay and explore the area for longer.
