Summits walking track connects two of the park’s summits, Mount Canobolas (also known as Old Man Canobolas) and Young Man Canobolas, traversing a saddle between to two mountains and joining up with some of the other walking tracks along the way.
Before you head off on the walk, take some time to admire the scenic view from the summit of Old Man Canobolas; you'll be able to see the town of Orange and surrounding countryside.
When you’re on your way, you’ll first hike along a downhill track that passes through snowgum grassy woodland. Keep an eye out for grey currawongs during summer and look for white throated tree creepers. From there, you’ll wind uphill to the summit of Young Man Canobolas.
If you’d like to turn this short walk into a longer day walk, you can join up with the Spring Glade, Snowgum or Nature tracks; look out for signage along the way.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
