Salvation Loop Trail
A delightful, easy walking track through unique hanging swamps off West Head Road in the middle of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Salvation loop trail offers a perfect outing for the family and a brilliant walk for nature enthusiasts who want to experience the wet heathlands of the park.
Skirting the edge of the hanging swamp and wet heathland, notice how the vegetation changes. Only plants that don’t mind getting their feet wet can thrive here. You’ll see sphagnum moss, sword grass and the green-flowering swamp banksia. Coral and pink swamp heath are dotted through the heathland.
On close inspection, you might discover the insect-eating sundew plant, which catches small insects with its velcro-like mitts. If you want a longer walk, take the turn off to Wallaroo walking track, or simply continue on the loop and walk back along the road. Lay out a picnic lunch on the tables at Salvation Creek picnic area.
