Weddin Gap to Black Spring loop trail begins where the state forest meets Weddin Mountains National Park. It’s the longest loop trail in the park and a great route to tackle if you’re looking for a satisfying one-day challenge or an easily achievable two-day hike. There are plenty of places to camp under the stars along the way.

Beginning with a steep trail to get your heart pumping, a second trail leads you to the top of the range for fantastic scenic views across the surrounding plains. As you make your way along the ridgeline, there are views of the rugged eastern escarpment and, on a clear day, you should be able to see the town of Grenfell in the distance.

Keep your binoculars handy for birdwatching, as there are many birds that feed, nest and hunt in the park such as peregrine falcons, wedge-tailed eagles, babblers, warblers and even emus.
