From Mt Piddington

Mt Piddington turnoff is to the left just before Mt Victoria heading west. I'd driven around the circuit drive that surrounds the peak but never took any of the walks from there. Last weekend I went with a friend and did the Cox's Cave circuit walk. It took us the best part of the day starting out around 10am. Its an interesting and varied walk. Steep in parts but plenty of leafy vegetation underfoot. As it turned out, weather was sunny and temp in low 20s. Ideal for bushwalking really. When you are walking through rainforested area a sunny day is not a bad thing with filtered light finding its way to the valley floor. Having said that, I'm looking forward to a return in more misty conditions.

Most of the time was spent on the first half of the walk only realising later how much time was spent in each place exploring the overhangs, fern groves and grottos.
