Mount Towac walk is a 1.7km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area, NSW. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
Mount Towac walk takes you on a short trek to Towac Peak, where you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area and the surrounding countryside.
Gentle breezes caress the old eucalypts which dwarf you along the path and the rare lichen clinging to the volcanic rock makes this walk a charming one. The absence of facilities along the way will make you feel as though you’re the first person to walk along this delightful track.
This short walk starts from the Gum Ridge fire trail. A little further along Towac Road, you’ll find Towac picnic area; a simple and pleasant place to spread out a picnic rug if you have time.
