Mount Mutton Walking Trail starts at the award-winning Alma Park, in Queen Street, Uralla. It crosses Thunderbolt’s Way and ascends into bushland winding around Mount Mutton. There are glimpses of the town centre through the trees as you reach the higher ground and there is a diversion from the track to the top of Mount Mutton, for those wanting to view the town from the highest point. The track is well marked on Mount Mutton and is quite wide. It leads back to Fitzroy Road north, and follows Thunderbolt’s Way past the bowling club, crossing back to finish at Alma Park.
While on the walk please be conscious that from the lookout toward the North is the site of the last corroboree held in Uralla by the local Aniwan people in the early 1830s. Sadly the bora ring marking this ceremonial site has disappeared.
The walk will take 30-45 minutes, depending on the walker’s level of fitness. You are advised to wear suitable shoes as the descent is steep and windy!
