The glen and it's wonderful tracks
Evansdale Glen is a DCC operated picnic area that has several swimming holes and a big playing field. There are two notable features, the Careys Creek walking track and the Evansdale Waterfall. To see the waterfall click here. The Careys Creek Track follows the old farm track to the end at the foot of Rongomai Ridge, from here it becomes quite rough and narrow as it makes it's way up to the creek's source and finally ending at Semple Road in the silver peaks. Two more tracks split off of Careys; The Rongomai Ridge Track and the Honeycomb Ridge Track. Along Careys Creek you will notice some old rusting pipes, these were used as the water supply for the Seacliff Lunatic Asylum. They were abandoned in 1949 due to land slips.
