Not a hiker? Try 6ft Track by Car
Six Foot Track is a well known hiking route; however, not everyone can commit time or have appropriate fitness level to complete the walk. The alternative to a walk could be four wheel drive trek which runs for about 60 km and partly intersects with 6ft track walking route. The drive can be easily completed within a day or could be an overnight trip option as a get away from the city.

The trek starts from Little Hartley village on Coxs River Road. It keeps on going straight and becomes Cullenbenbong Rd which reaches the gate that is signposted as 6ft Track. You can find yourself passing through a few gates of the private properties, and these gates should be left as found. There is a Coxs River Camping area if you detour from main route (when you follow this route, make sure you have local topographic walking maps of the area). The camping area could be a nice alternative to stay overnight in the nature.

You can complete parts of the 6ft Track on foot or have a combination of walking and driving. The drive also leaves an option for a short hike towards famous Bowtell's Swing Bridge and you can try crossing this bridge back and forth.

The trek finishes on Black Range Rd that winds through Kanangra Boyd National Park, and reaches Jenolan Caves Rd. On the way back to Sydney, you can visit Hampton village or you can just stay overnight in the area and visit famous Jenolan Caves which is an attraction on its own.
