Red Hill Trail

The Red Hill Trail is located within the foothills of the Marysville State Forest. It's name is what it suggests, consisting of a gradual incline on a red clay path. The path from Buxton-Marysville Road is a one way 2.1km walk taking approximately 30-40 minutes until you meet its intersection with the Michaeldene Trail.

Jump onto the Michaeldene Trail and follow it past the trestle bridge to the Taggerty River Lookout and then follow the circuit to the trestle bridge again and back the way you came. For a longer walk you can follow the Michaeldene trail back to the car park at Lady Talbot Drive and then follow Kerami Crescent to return to Marysville Caravan Park.

* Please note dogs are allowed on this trail.


The Red Hill Trail can be accessed from two locations. Halfway along the Michaeldene Trail just after the trestle bridge crossing or along Buxton-Marysville Road across from the Marysville Caravan Park. Here you will see an orange trail head sign.
