Eucalypts Trail

About the Walking Trail

The Eucalypts Trail is a short loop that takes in both pine and hardwood plantations in the beautiful Kuitpo forest. During late Winter and Spring a beautiful array of wildflowers can be seen on display along the trail. The trail is an accessible short walk and is a great walk for younger kids, a good walk for bird watching.

Start the trail from the dirt Razorback Road, Meadows, at fire gate RC3, which is the gate to access Rocky Creek Hut. The gate is located 4 km northwest of Meadows and 13km north of the Kuitpo Forest Information Centre.

The trail is a multi-use trail for walkers, horse riders and cyclists.

The total distance is 2 km and it takes around 1 hour to walk the trail.

Forest Trail Code

The forest trail and road network is used by walkers, horse riders and cyclists. To ensure everyone’s enjoyment and safety please consider:

  • For your safety, avoid areas where access is restricted, including where forestry operations are in progress. Look out for warning signs.
  • Always wear a helmet when cycling and horse riding and travel at a safe speed according to your experience, track conditions and terrain.
  • Consider other users. Walkers give way to cyclists and both should give way to horse riders. Courtesy is the key.
  • Avoid steep, muddy or loose trails and surfaces, where the tracks you leave behind can channel water and cause erosion.

For your safety, on days a total fire ban is declared forest reserves are closed to the public.
