This route approach Tuckers Nob from Orara Valley, through Orara East State Forest. We prefer the Devos Trail route up through Bindarri National Park to the spectacular viewpoint on Tuckers Nob, but it was still interesting to walk the forests and creeks on the north side of the mountain.
As with Devos Trail, take poles as the descent is very steep, and best avoided after rain. After your walk, you may want a cool off swim at Magic Pools.
An alternative route to Tuckers Nob from Crossmaglen tracks up Western Trail and then follows Peak Trail and That Steep Bit.
4WD is needed to access the start point on Frontage Creek Rd.
