The trees on the Girrakool Loop had some interesting details. This one had stripes on it.
And this log had bark that was as red as the outback sands.
There were some wildflowers out, the most striking being this mountain devil.
Eventually, the track met up with Leask and Piles Creeks. These waterways run into the Hawkesbury.
As we made our way back uphill towards the picnic area, we encountered a few little cascades and cool patches of rainforest.
A nice little walk through the Sydney Basin bush.
