Only Experienced, Self-Sufficient Trekkers

Nature Trail’s venture offering 2-Day Treks and Multi-Day Treks (3+ days) extends along rugged difficult and hiking tracks through remote and bushland and wilderness throughout the Blue Mountains Region.

Nature Trail Treks are quite different to our Hiking Tours and Road Tours.

For safety and professional reasons, Nature Trail does NOT offer our treks to the general public nor to private groups on a charter arrangement.  Instead, we only offer Nature Trail Treks only to a registered pool of independent experienced trekkers, each of whom is required to have first met eligibility criteria.

On Nature Trail Treks we don’t provide any personal kit (clothing, gear or sustenance) to any participant on a trek.  Instead, Trek participants are required to be completely self-sufficient for all their own personal clothing, gear and sustenance throughout the trek.

However, what Nature Trail does offer that makes its Treks value-added is hightened safety and security as a professionally planned and led group of qualified experts, compared with trekkers who dangerously risk going solo with no backup.

Applicants must first satisfy appropriate prerequisites and successfully complete our Trekking Alumni Registration process.
