Walk No 6
Getting There: From Gosford, follow the Entrance Road through East Gosford to the Avoca Drive traffic lights. Turn right and continue on Avoca Drive to the Kincumber Village shopping centre. At the roundabout, turn left into Bungoona Rd, then first left into Kincumber Street. Follow this street to the end and continue on an unsealed road for about 1½ km up to the top of Kincumba Mountain. When you get to the locked gate, there is a car park on the left.
Description: Kincumba Mountain Reserve is easily accessed and has great views from an extensive family-friendly picnic area. The Yanina Walk (marked in bright green) follows the ridge to an escarpment overlooking Picketts Valley. Towards the end of the trail you will see a left fork. Follow this one to Nyari Lookout views of Terrigal beach then walk along the escarpment to Colin Watters Lookout views of Avoca beach.
On the way back, take the short loop past the caves. The kids love this bit.
Distance: About 3km return.
Duration: 1½ hours
Degree of Difficulty: Very easy. This track follows the ridge and is mostly wide and flat.
Best Time: Spring and summer for the flowers and any time for the views.
