The Box Vale Track is a great easy grade dog walking track in Southern Highlands. It follows the formation of an historic railway line and passes through cuttings, along embankments and through a tunnel 84 metres in length. Although much of the surrounding terrain is steep and rocky, the 4.4 km walking track has easy grades and the return walk takes approx. 3 hours.
There is also a 1.8 km spur track through pleasant bushland to Forty Foot Falls. The initial 1.5 km is along a fire trail of easy grade and the return walk takes about 1 hour. However the Falls cannot be seen from the end of the fire trail and a very steep track (dropping 110 metres in elevation) leads to a vantage point below the falls. This section would be quite difficult for a person not accustomed to negotiating such tracks. The return walk along the entire 1.8 km spur track takes about 2-3 hours.
Bring water for you and your dog as there are no water station along the way. Make sure to keep your dog on the lead as there is a lot of wild life in the area including wombats, wallabies and possums.
