Backstairs track

Backstairs Track Little Joe Loop Tramway

Backstairs Track used to link Old Warburton to the ‘new’ Warburton, the steps long ago worn down by packhorses. Walk or run up Mt Little Joe, the 469m mini-mountain that stands proudly to the south-west of town, between Warburton and Millgrove.


Track starts on gravel, then moves into bush tracks with very steep ascents. High fitness level required.
