The Razorback – Chadwick and Ah Kow Spurs hike is a fairly demanding walk into remote areas of the gorge and encompasses one of the steepest climbs on known trails in this park.

Start along the Razorback track and descend into the river gorge. Following a small section of river walking you will ascend the Lower Chadwick Track (just because its another hill to climb). Back down into the gorge via the McKenzie Track then leaves you with approximately 2km of river to hike along before ascending the Ah Kow Spur. It is a nice climb out, is very steep and sure to have your heart pumping.

Ensure you are well prepared with at least 3ltrs or water for this hike.
