Mobong walking track is a 5km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Cascade National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The first 500m of Mobong walking track follows a historic tramway that was once used when the area was logged for timber. You'll even walk across old sleepers along the path. The trail then follows Mobong Creek, with its waterfalls and serene pools. All around, lush rainforest trees tower above the path, while at ground level old stumps are another reminder of bygone days.
Along the way, listen carefully for the shy lyrebird, whose call mimics sounds from their environment. You might also hear some of the rare frogs living in the leaf litter of the forest.
For the final 800m of the walk, you'll travel through Wild Cattle Creek State Forest, finishing at a picnic area, so make sure you bring along some sandwiches for a relaxing break before retracing your steps. On the way back join the Box Ridge walking track to view the huge ancient brush box trees.
