Experience the spectacular Fans Horizon walking track in Warrumbungle National Park, which has only recently reopened following a rebuild after the devastating fires of 2013. This 3.6km track is an excellent introductory walk, allowing visitors to ascend the range and see panoramic views of the valley and its incredible volcanic features, including the iconic Breadknife.
Start at Pincham carpark, near Camp Pincham and Warrumbungle Visitor Centre. As the trails winds to the right, it climbs steeply through eucalypt forest. After 1.8km, and over 1000 steps, you’ll reach a lookout atop the exposed sandstone cliffs of Balgatan Mountain.
Take the time to catch your breath as you enjoy some of the park’s most rewarding sights. You’ll have magnificent views of the iconic Breadknife, Belougery Spire and Crater Bluff.
Return the way you came, past sandstone outcrops and natural bushland. Keep an eye out for scurrying lizards at your feet, and crimson rosellas, yellow robins or bronzewings in the canopy.
