Oberon (at former Station site nr cnr Albion St and North St) to Hazlegrove (former station site)
This 6km section is part of a 24km branch line that climbs up from the main western railway at Tarana to Oberon, 1100m above sea level. It was opened in 1923 and ceased operation in 1979. Due to the steep grades and numerous curves it was reportedly infamous for being the slowest railway line in NSW but should make a great rail trail! Hazelgrove is at the top of the steep grade down to Tarana.
The Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway is proposing to run trains once again from Oberon on the railway, hence a rail-side trail.
