Water is not provided at the barbecue areas. Box Vale Walking Track follows the formation of an historic railway line and passes through cuttings, along embankments and through a tunnel 84 metres in length. Although much of the surrounding terrain is steep and rocky, the 4.4 kilometre walking track has easy grades and the return walk takes about three hours.
