Hard track
Starting from Hope Street, Nerang, this walk takes you on a circuit in the eucalypt woodland of Nerang National Park via various shared-use trails, crossing multiple creeks along the way. This track will challenge your navigational and aural skills as well as your level of fitness, if not more. The extensive web of tracks give you a chance to customize your journey, but this also means that there will be heaps of intersections/turns that you need to memorize if you’re on a trail run. You may come across the occasional wallaby along with other wildlife residing in the park. The tracks are shared with mountain bikers, therefore you need to look out and listen for them at all times to be safe. The gradient is varied with some decent ascents/descents that will get your heart rate up. You’ll be covered by the canopy on some parts of the journey, but the exposed parts may become problematic in warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
