“THE Bridle Trail originally ran from Bathurst to the once major gold-mining town of Hill End. The road runs by the Macquarie River which runs north-west from Bathurst to Lake Burrandong. The road was cut many years ago by subsidence and never reopened. It is rugged country and the road has many river crossings and steep gradients. It must have been very tough going with horse and dray back in the gold mining days. It is most dramatic and interesting when it is windy and wet.”
