Rifle Range Link Stream

Along the route, there is also a shallow forest stream with stepping stones that you can use to cross it.

Stairs to Rifle Range Road

Stairs to Rifle Range Road

From the stairs, it is a gradual uphill walk along Rifle Range Link to Rifle Range Road.

How to Get to Rifle Range Link

This area is quite straight and wider but there are sections where have to be careful because water has eroded away parts of the path and created channels. Plus it can be a bit muddy too.

Eventually, once Rifle Range Link ends, you will have to make your way out along Rifle Range Road to reach you next destination.

It is approximately 1.4 km from the Sime Track junction to Rifle Range Road along the Rifle Range Link. However, it can feel a bit longer because you will be moving along forest tracks and uphill.
