The Link track is easily the hardest climb in the Churchill National Park. This is a climb that would appeal to the pure hill junkies. Not only is it steep.  But the Link track has the extra challenge of having a very rough loose gravel surface that offers little traction. Don’t be ashamed if you have to get off & walk this one. It’s made many grown men cry.

The climb starts at the corner of the Army Track & Link Track.

The steep section finishes after 200 meters.  However if you turn right there is a further 500 metres of climbing which is guaranteed to test the legs & your lungs.

Here is a link to that segment here:

Be aware of the rough surface
