Starting from Split Rock parking area follow this moderate circuit walk along the peaks of Warrumbungle National Park. Once at the top of the Split Rock you'll be rewarded with stunning views over Warrumbungle mountain and Western Plains. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi & Wailwan people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey.
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
