Trail shared by Jonathan Moulds

A bush track connection between the lower car park to Wrights Hill Shortcut near the upper car park.

Description

A gentle piece of singletrack that wanders along a finger of bush between two parts of Wrights Hill Road.

To reach the lookout from this track there are a few options. In an open stretch of track 0.4 km from the lower car park, take the unmarked Wrights Hill Lookout track that angles back up the hill. If you miss that turnoff, then take the short, sharp, sign-posted alternative Wrights Hill Lookout route up through the bush. If you reach the Wrights Hill Shortcut intersection, then backtrack 30m and have another go - or turn right and follow Wrights Hill Shortcut for 0.2km then climb up the top part of Scout Hall to the summit
