The 28,322 hectare Gardens of Stone State Conservation Area is comprised of three former state forests including Newnes State Forest, part of Ben Bullen State Forest and Wolgan State Forest, and provides an important link between Blue Mountains National Park, Gardens of Stone National Park and Wollemi National Park.

The park conserves rich eucalypt forests, important Wiradjuri cultural heritage and an array of threatened species and ecological communities.

The main access roads to the park are:• State Mine Gully Road from Lithgow • Old Bells Line of Road (Zig Zag Railway) from Clarence• Maiyingu Murragu Trail from Wolgan Valley• Long Swamp Road from Wolgan Valley.

All roads in the park are unsealed and accessible by 4WD vehicles. Many minor tracks are genuine 4WD low range and best left to capable vehicles and drivers. eg. The Spanish Steps.
The Glow Worm Tunnel Road is accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles in dry weather. In wet conditions it can be slippery and the vehicle will return filthy with mud spray.
