This track is not wheel chair friendly - but even mountain bike friendly. Allow about 30 minutes from New World to the clock. The top part in particular is a climb and will require a moderate level of fitness. From the sign at Graveyard Gully...More

It is really worth the hike up to the clock to get an awesome view out over Alexandra towards Clyde. It is a short hike up.
