  • Vehicle access to this attraction is only available to visitors who are camping or staying at Big Yango House, Blue Gums campground or Mountain Arm campground. Gate codes will be provided in booking confirmations.

  • The weather in this area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you’re well-prepared for your visit.

The Big Yango loop trail is a great way to get away from it all and explore this rugged landscape. Whether you're in a 4WD or on a mountain bike, it's an excellent way to experience the remoteness of Yengo for yourself.

Not for the faint-hearted, the 22km trail includes some steep climbs and descents, as well as a few tight switchbacks. There are several washed-out areas along the track that are difficult to drive, so this trail is recommended only for very experienced 4WD drivers.

Take in spectacular views of the vast landscape, which extends west over the Yengo and Wollemi wilderness areas, out as far west as Newnes and Rylstone. Watch out for wombats, wallabies and even goannas. And, if visiting in spring, be sure to stop to enjoy the wonderful display of wildflowers.
