Summits walking track is a 2.1km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Summits walking track connects two of the park’s summits, Mount Canobolas (also known as Old Man Canobolas) and Young Man Canobolas, traversing a saddle between to two mountains and joining up with some of the other walking tracks along the way.
Before you head off on the walk, take some time to admire the scenic view from the summit of Old Man Canobolas; you’ll be able to see the town of Orange and surrounding countryside.
When you’re on your way, you’ll first hike along a downhill track that passes through snowgum grassy woodland. Keep an eye out for grey currawongs during summer and look for white throated tree creepers. From there, you’ll wind uphill to the summit of Young Man Canobolas.
If you’d like to turn this short walk into a longer day walk, you can join up with the Spring Glade, Snowgum or Nature tracks; look out for signage along the way.
