Spring Glade walking track is an invigorating way to reach the summit of Mount Canobolas. It offers a relatively easy walk and connects with several other trails in the area.

Along Spring Glade walking track, you’ll pass through grassy woodland and beautiful groves of trees which offer plenty of shade to break up your walk. Bring a picnic and beeline for the top of the mountain if sweeping scenic views are what you’re looking for. Summits walking track is also nearby for you to meander around the area, or you can take Snowgum walking track which intersects with the path along Spring Glade walking track and takes you all the way to places like Federal Falls.

Spring Glade walking track is good at nearly any time of the year, and scenic views are extra special while breathing in the crisp autumn air. Be mindful of the weather and keep your eyes peeled while birdwatching as there are sulphur-crested cockatoos and ringtail possums living in Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area.
