The "Blue Trail" is a collective description for sites that arouse natural or cultural interest or both. Most are only a short walk from roads or vehicular tracks.

One day, a high quality walking path may link them. That would offer a trekking alternative to the long walking routes, suitable only for super fit "adventure" tourists, that are unsustainable without new infrastructure and maintenance forays into wilderness areas.

The full Blue Trail is being added here.

Sections of the series featuring the western Blue Mountains can be found as part of past issues of Hut News.
