There are many good walking routes in Weddin Mountains National Park, and Lynchs loop trail is a great one to do, offering a lovely vista and plenty of birdwatching. The track, with short steep sections, leads steadily up through Small Basin gully to the edge of the western escarpment for superb scenic views across the valley towards Forbes.
After rain, water may be held in some areas of the drainage line in Small Basin gully, which adds to the natural beauty of this hiking track. In spring, things get even more appealing as the wildflowers start showing off their true colours, attracting nectar-loving birds.
The trail begins at Ben Halls campground and is ideal whether you’re camping over for a few days, enjoying a picnic, or exploring the park for an hour or two.
