Starting from the picnic and parking area at the end of Copeland Road, this circuit walk is the longest walk in Copeland Tops. The track leads you along the Hidden Treasure Track where you can prolong the walk by taking the alternate route. The walk through the forest then continues to then reach the historic Old Copeland Road with scenic views of Copeland Tops State Conservation Area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Biripi & Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
