Mt. Crichton Loop Track
This well formed track features rivers, a waterfall, a historic hut/tunnel, native bush and views - plenty to keep kids interested. This track passes through mountain beech and manuka, with red beech in the gullies.
Twelve Mile Creek Gorge was worked intensively by gold miners and signs of sluicing can still be seen. A short side track below Sam Summers Hut leads to an impressive rock fissure once used as a tail race.
A link to the Lake Dispute Track is signposted on the ridge on the eastern side.
