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.
