This is one of the best kept secrets in all of NSW, hidden on the edge of the Snowy Mountains. Standing under the canopy of these huge sugar pines is a pure delight, the long trunks sway with the wind in a hypnotic dance of eerie calmness, something so unfamiliar to our land. It is almost more fantasy than reality from the pages of Middle Earth. Being far from Sydney & Melbourne, this affords the benefit of avoiding huge crowds & remains isolated with the whole world far off somewhere else on another page.
The Sugar Pines weep a sweet honey in resin-beads if the wood is pierced, hence their name & are known to grow up to the wise old age of 800 years & is a resident pinewood in Yosemite National Park in the USA. These pines are known as being the largest of all pine trees.
Planted in 1928 & saved from the axeman’s steel due to their pure magic, this small wonderland measures 2.4 hectares, the immediate Sugar pines lie within 85,000 hectares of pine plantation forests. The walk is only 500 metres in length, is surrounded by wild berries & is completely free to visit. Sugar Pine Walk can be found at the village of Laurel Hill on Kopsons Road, off Batlow Rd in the Bargo State Forest, 2.5 hours from Canberra & about 450kms from Sydney & Melbourne in northern Kosciuszko National Park.
