I explored this 4 km (return) scenic track on Thursday afternoon September 9, 2010, starting at the Beenak Rd.
The track follows the McCrae Creek Gully, reaching a cleared space which is understood to be the site of a former timber mill.
A short foottrack leads to the creek, which originates high up at the Shiprock Falls.
There is a change in elevation from 281 m to 225 m.
The Photos shows the scenery, track, environment, and creek. I have included images of the Blue Range, taken from Beenak Rd, which show the Mt Beenak Communications/Fire Tower.
