The Glen Rosa Track

1 hr 30 mins

3.5 km Circuit

120 m

Moderate track
Using a variety of trails this circuit is a good walk for those looking for a shorter walk in the Medlow Bath area. Unfortunately, it does not have the views of the Megalong Valley that many of the other walks in the area do have. It is really the sidetrips that make this walk enjoyable, especially the short trip down to the small cave.
