Tuckers Nob – Devos Trail

A tough walk in the beautiful rainforest of Bindarri NP with a spectacular lookout as the reward.

Trail information

Tuckers Nob – Devos Trail

The view from the top on a clear day is worth the cardio workout on the climb and the jelly legs on the downhill. You can see from Urunga on the Pacific Ocean up to Bellingen, Gleniffer Falls and the plateau around Dorrigo.

The Bindarri National Park rainforest is equally as beautiful as the view – listen out for birds and keep a lookout for snakes.

Poles are helpful to control your descent. Note the highest point on Tuckers Nob is further along the ridge line, there is no path from this lookout to the highest point.

We started our walk at a point on Howards Rd (accessing from Granite Pit Road off Timboon Rd) but this requires 4WD. If you have a 2WD, consider instead walking up Western Trail from Crossmaglen Road, turning east on Peak Trail toward Tuckers Nob.

    Thanks for adding a 2wd option! I love exploring our coast but with a little Kia Rio my options seem limited with most walking trails having a 4wd access
    Thanks 🙂

    A strenuous but very rewarding hike. Feels great to emerge into a lost world, magnificent tree specimens and plenty of wonderful lyrebirds. On a wet day it’s a good idea to have trekking poles. Also keep an eye out for the turn off back to the single track on the way down .. if like me you get into the zone it’s too easy to keep going on the main track. if you hear a river on your right you’ve gone too far so a little more down down up up to add to your day!
    Also top tip is drive back out along Tallowood Road, which is in very good condition, as it’s only another 10 minutes to some great swimming holes on the Never Never River.

      Lol, we got into the zone and missed the turn off too!
