A great walk at a comfortable pace with a mixture of historic remnants of the Old Great North Rd, and some beautiful views over the Hawkesbury River and other valleys. Most of this walk follows parts of the convict built road, and a number of information signs along the way give a good insight into the construction and history of the road, making the walk more interesting. Wildflowers and sandstone bushland along Finchs Line Track. The last section of the walk, along Wisemans Ferry Rd, has some great views of the cliffs above. The historic Thomas James Bridge, just before the end of the walk, is the oldest in-use bridge on mainland Australia. http://wild.tl/dhaflc Historic road and bush tracks, steep in places.
