Another one for your Bucket List. Coachwood Glenn Reserve Nature Trail in the Megalong Valley. The kids will love it. This walk is soooo green, so because of that, the rocks can be slippery, so take your time.

Coachwood Glen is a small nature reserve in a Megalong Valley gorge eroded by Pulpit Hill Creek between the Shipley Plateau and the Blue Mountains Range. An attractive nature trail winds its way through the reserve, crossing Pulpit Hill Creek twice.
