Track simplification
Gravel road that reaches high into the rainforest (1250 metres) which is very rare. Sometimes becomes impassable in the wet season or only to 4WD. The road starts at he first bridge past the Highlander Hotel. The Highlander is on the corner of the Mossman- Mount Molloy Road and the Mount Lewis Road at Julatten. Once you turn at the pub cross the first bridge and then the road will go either left or right. Stay left and then cross another bridge (Bushy Creek). Road now turns to dirt and will go up for the next 9 km. At the 11km mark of the trip their is a clearing and on the left a walking track that runs off to junction. The left track takes you to an old miners dam and is a great picnic spot (complete with platypus if you are lucky). The right track is a much longer walk known as the Ho Chi Minh trail and is a picturesque walk with views over the Savannah country. Back on Mt Lewis road, there is a gate after the clearing which can be closed to vehicles but is a great mountain bike ride with 1542 metres of ascent, beautiful mountain streams, lots of birds and best of all a rip roaring descent that feels like it may go forever. There is a hut at the end of the road and views out over the outback before the hut. NOTE the track shown here on gpsies is up to the top of the mountain and then back.
