Making its way through remote forest, Baldy Billy Peak walking track is a peaceful day walk offering expansive views. With its rough track, limited signage and some steep sections, it's also a hard walk only suitable for very experienced bushwalkers.

You'll start from the informal parking area and follow Dirrang Management Trail for around 1km, descending into grey gum forest. Entering a clearing at the bottom of the Dirrang Management Trail, you'll then continue along a small trail heading west through a section of grass. The trail splits here with Wollondilly River walking track on your left heading south, and Baldy Billy Peak walking track on your right heading north.

Following Baldy Billy Peak walking track you'll enter forest red gum woodland and start your climb toward Baldy Billy Peak. Though the last few meters of the trail are steep, the reward for your efforts is well worth it as you'll enjoy incredible views from the top of Wollondilly River, Batteries Point, Limestone Creek and Little Baldy Peak.
