The 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 km walking track has easy grades and the return walk takes approx. 3 hours. There is also a 1.8 km spur track through pleasant bush land to Forty Foot Falls. The initial 1.5 km is along a fire trail of easy grade and the return walk takes about 1 hour. However the Falls cannot be seen from the end of the fire trail and a very steep track (dropping 110 metres in elevation) leads to a vantage point below the falls.  This section would be quite difficult for a person not accustomed to negotiating such tracks. The return walk along the entire 1.8 km spur track takes about 2 hours. There are picnic tables located at the beginning of the track car park. The track head is located about 250 metres off the Hume Highway. The turn off is located 3.7 km west of Mittagong and 0.8 km east of the Wombeyan Caves Road.
