Summary

This trail follows four connected disused mining tramways, one with a tunnel.

A line of bollards now separates the gravel car park from the tunnel and a neatly grassed picnic ground surrounding a plaque describing the history of mining in that area. A timber walkway leads you from the picnic ground, through the tunnel to the road at the northern end.

Part way along the car park access road is a track which lets you continue to Comstock by 4WD or bicycle, or on foot.
