Crisp and Gunn Mill workers

Description: Constructed by hand of timber over a distance of 13 kms, this track crossed steep hilly country which required many viaducts and bridges e.g. leg-log and chock-log creek crossings. Now a well interpreted bush walking track named after a section of tramway across a steep unstable scree slope at an altitude of 200 metres falling away to sea level and very prone to rock 'slides'.. Many landing stages remain with large stumps used to anchor the steam log hauler.
