Drive five minutes from Armidale. Walk for ages. Find the grove. Find the creek. Kiss your partner. Take a picnic.

Excellent place for a bike ride, a dog walk or a jog. You can even camp there if you want. Addition of toilets recently adds a lot. If this place was on the coast, you'd be paying to get in and it would be very...More

Had a lovely walk through some of the trails. Recommend to fill in a couple of hours of activity. Not much infrastructure. Could do with some picnic tables etc.. Which would make it more usable and a destination

Steep sections but can be done by the little kids with strider style bikes. No infrastructure, park on road and I imagine hot in summer but a safe place to ride and challenging / designed for older kids XC style.
