This trailhead is located 22.3km from the turn-off on Namatjira Drive (allow 2 hours drive - high clearance 4WD only). This is the official start of Section 6 of the Larapinta Trail and is just south of the actual Hugh Gorge, which is only accessible on foot.

Section 6 is the longest section of the Larapinta Trail, but much of the trail winds up, around and over undulating and boring terrain for no particular reason. That said, it is a pleasant walk across Alice Valley and a welcoming change after the rugged mountainous terrain of S5. Excellent walk for bird watching. Rocky Gully is a nice half way campsite.
