Entrance to the north end of the Balfour Packhourse / Walking Track, which was once used for packhorses and prospectors enroute to the mines at Balfour in the 1900's. Can be traversed by hikers - a medium, 3 hour return walk through cool temperate rainforest, beneath towering myrtle, cucalypt and sassafras trees. The forest walk follows the course of Stephens Rivelet. Not to be confused with the 4WD route also called the Balfour Track further to the SW.
