When the Dun Mountain Railway was opened in 1862 then the previous access route fell into disuse.  This was called the Bullock Track and it ran around the north and east sides of Wooded Peak.  After 160 years of disuse there is very little trace of the Bullock Track left, but I have found some of those traces.

This trip will start from Brook valley and follow the Dun Mountain trail past Third House and Junction Saddle and then go off-track on the slopes of Wooded Peak to follow the parts of Bullock Track that I have found and attempt to find some more and maybe reach Coppermine Saddle.

There is no guarantee that we will find any more track or reach any destination, but we will definitely find stinging nettle, bush lawyer, fallen trees and rocky bluffs.
