Some narrow roads.

From Sandy Hollow, the trail heads east on the Golden Highway to the village of Hollydeen. Turn right into the road to Myambat which is a more scenic route to the major town of Denman. The Martindale Road leads south out of Denman, overlooking the Hunter River, for 7km to a left turn into Bureen Road. Continue across Martindale Creek and through Bureen and Archeringa and across Doyles Creek to rejoin the Golden Highway at Jerrys Plains. Follow the Golden Highway along the foot of the dramatically steep Wollemi escarpment through Splitters Hollow and Warkworth. Soon after Warkworth, turn right and drive 7km to the Putty Road intersection (and the main Greater Blue Mountains Drive). The village of Bulga is 1km to the right, or turn left to follow the Putty Road to Singleton.
