The Corn Trail Walk

The Corn Trail follows the route used by the pack horse teams of early settlers in the 1830s as they traded produce, mainly corn grown in the fertile valley, with their neighbours on the southern tablelands.

The Trail crosses high mountain ridges and deep rainforest valleys. Some parts of the track are very steep and most people follow the trail downhill. Car parks at either end enable car shuffling. Toilets are available at Mongarlowe Picnic Area, a short drive from the Dasyurus Picnic Area.
