The track was rough and steep as we descended to Florabella Pass, but improved further along the track.
The track followed the Florabella creek, before climbing higher up the side of the gorge and turning more to the east after the junction with Glenbrook creek.
We saw a lyrebird while we stopped for lunch at the junction with the side track which leads to Ross Street. Our walk continued along the Pippas Pass track, turning off at the exit path which leads up to Blaxland Library.
We passed several cafés on the way to the station, but as the train was due soon we didn't stop for coffee after this walk.
A shorter version of the walk can be done as a circuit starting at Plateau Pde off Bridge Rd Blaxland.
