Six Foot Track Jenolan Forest.

For those who live around me, wanting to do a nice trail ride with a few little river crossings, magnificent views, a lot of hills, and also a nice stop and fun on a very long and high swing bridge over the coxs river, i suggest riding out to the Six Foot Track.

Here is a link with some views. You can enter on the Jenolan Caves Road (this is near the end of the hiking trail) and ride around 35km to the Coxs river. The whole trail is around 50 km long, but dont worry, youll be riding the best part. 

http://www.wildwalks.com/bushwalking-and-hiking-in-nsw/blue-mountains-katoomba/six-foot-track.html

i know its a walking website, but down the bottom click near the map where it says "Print a map and track notes here."

Here are directions to the entrance:

From Goulburn, head on Taralga road all the way to Taralga,

this becomes Abercrombie road,

follow this until it turns into black springs road and then follow this to Oberon. Fuel up here.

From Oberon follow Duckmaloi road to Jenolan Caves Road

turn right on Jenolan caves road and follow until you see the enterance sign for Six Foot track on your left. its small so look out for the symbol for a hiker.

You are definately allowed to ride the trail, 4wd the trail or bike/hike the trail. there is water along the trail and BBQ/Shelter. There is also a ****ter at Black ranges camp site and coxs river camp site.

Definately do the swing bridge, its scary but fun. you turn around here and head back the way you came.

I would say skill level would be differing along the trail. from wide fire trail to single track. perhaps pack some warm clothes in a pack, as if stuck out there, it gets cold very quickly and this would be baaaaaaaad without shelter.

if the weather is fine on Sunday i may do this one if someone is keen. PM me. Anyone is welcome.

 I did, had a really good ride up the Mt Hay trail, it's a there and back again track but that was OK, then went on up to Blackheath and various tracks inbetween, A glorious day indeed

I would like to get familiar with the Blue Mountains area. It is a lot closer to home than where I am familiar on the south coast. Have been around Newnes and Hill End a few times. Also more open roads around Bathurst which is nice territory, Oberon, etc. How wet was it?
