Teddy Bear Gap Circuit
Time 2.5 - 3hr Distance 7.4km (loop) Grade – Easy-medium
Though we missed the wild flower season which is when this area really come into its own, this is still a great short walk. I have graded it as easy to medium, but in reality it isn't all that difficult, with the first section being the toughest due to the steep incline.

To get there, drive to the Jimmy Creek Camp ground, here you will find toilet facilities and a great spot to have a bit of a rest and a picnic after your walk. Cross the bridge on the far side of the camping ground to enter the track.
This will begin as a gentle stroll through bushland before beginning to climb. You will reach an intersection where the trail meets the access road. keep following the trail which directly in front of you. This is the steepest past of the climb but being a well cut track it isn't terribly challenging.
Stop to catch your breath and catch a glimpse of the lovely mountains surrounding you. The track offers several vantage points. You will reach a rocky outcrop which you will need to continue to follow as it winds its way up. Eventually you come to the top of the mountain and the track very quickly levels out.
Once you reach the far side, it will begin to gently descend until you a wide unpaved road. Follow the road until you meet once again with the entrance to the track leading to Jimmy Creek Capground. Follow this for to get you back to the intersection which you crossed earlier on the day.
Once you reach the intersection retrace your steps to the camp ground,
