Track Notes:


Redledge Pass was used by miners from the Glen Shale Mine to get to and from Katoomba.  It is a long pass with several distinct sections.

The pass descends a long slot from Narrow Neck Plateau into a hanging valley formed by Corral Creek.  It crosses the creek and emerges from the western side of the valley onto a wide ledge.  There is Log Book in a tin here.

The pass continues west along the ledge for about 250 metres.  There are some quite narrow sections of track in this section and some exposure.

There are 2 possible routes through the final cliff line.

The first route passes under a large rock and descends a well worn track through a deep, reentrant slot.  The second route is about 25 metres further west and is very steep, also through a reentrant slot.  Both emerge on the same ledge below the cliff line.

Relics from the Glen Shale Mine are at the bottom of the scree slope below Redledge Pass.
