Best Day Hikes
Pidgeon House Mountain has to be one of the best known and most accessible hikes in the local region. Once you reach the top, the views are amazing. There is also the Mt Mogood hike, North West of Shallow Crossing, which is great for anyone not fit enough to climb Pidgeon House. Pack a picnic and allow a day to take in one, or all, including Ingold’s knob, Pidgeon House, Yadboro, Shallow Crossing and Mt Mogood. Pack your day pack, lunch, plenty of water and explore the hinterland. Yadboro has a great riverside picnic/BBQ area and camp ground – with a loo – Shallow Crossing is where the Clyde becomes tidal and some spring high tides make crossing briefly impassable. Life is love, and is meant to be lived. All in days adventure!
Be Sure to stop in at the Pidgeon House Tea Rooms on your return journey after your hike, to fuel yourself for your next adventure. Drive, explore, hike, bike or just sit and enjoy the vista.
Always be prepared by taking a day pack with some essentials. Water, food, sunscreen, a hat, a map and an extra layer of clothing are a must.
