EASY, 3.2KM: The track follows beside the gurgling Four Mile Creek, snaking its way under a thick, lush forest canopy over a vibrant understory of ferns, musk daisy bush, blanket-leaf and bootlace bush.
MODERATE TO DIFFICULT, 9KM: Donna Buang boasts enough natural beauty in its own right to guarantee it is a bushwalking gem that can be done at a leisurely pace. However, shooting up 1170-vertical metres in 9km, the Track comes into its own as a hill training venue.

MODERATE, 51.2 km: This is a fascinating journey on foot along well-preserved timber industry tramways, past old bush mills and relics of yesteryear hidden amongst the forest, reminders of when gangs of foresters called this wilderness their office.
