This short and fairly flat walk starts from the popular Honeman's picnic area and follows the Sid Pulsford Walking Track, then another trail to Warriwarri Lookout. The lookout is overgrown and provides no real view. A short distance beyond the signposted lookout is a rocky outcrop that provides some filtered views of the district. A nice walk through the dry ridge top forest, just don't expect grand views. (open in app)

Honeman's Rock picnic area Alt = 171 m
Honeman's Rock picnic area is a large picnic area at the top end of Island View Drive. This picnic area has a couple of large grassy areas[1], composting toilets[2], free electric BBQs[3], picnic tables[4], shelters, garbage bins[5], drinking water[6] and information signs[7]. The picnic area is home to a mud brick building[8] (available for hire) and Honeman's Rock[9], from which the area derives its name. There is a fair amount of parking available next the picnic area, and some extra spaces a few hundred meters down the road.

Honeman's Rock Alt = 163 m
Honeman's Rock (aka Honeyman's Rock) is a large rock outcrop in front of the mud brick building, in the Honeman's Rock Picnic area. The exposed section of rock is 60m long and about 30m wide, with the western side having a significant unfenced drop. The rock is named after Cecil Lyle Honeman who became a lease holder on the mountain in 1962[10]. The rock has a large depression that once filled with water, and a drain has been dug to keep the pool empty and clear of rubbish.

Mud Brick Building Alt = 170 m
The mud brick building is a landmark in the main picnic area at Kincumber Mountain, and is a popular spot to gather. Also known as 'Kincumber Mountain Information Centre', 'The Kiosk', 'Kincumber Kiosk' and 'Kincumber Mountain Kiosk', the building was constructed in 1986 with funding from Community Employment Programme[11]. The building is generally locked but can be booked through the local Lions Club[12] for special events. The building has a rain water tank, small kitchen and one main large room. The verandah also provides good shelter.

(0 km) Mudbrick building car park to Northern end of picnic area
Walk: Easy - bushtrack
Length = 184 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 4 m Descent = -1 m
From the car park next to the mud brick building, this walk heads in front of the mud brick building and follows the path to the toilet block. Here, the walk heads across the grass between the picnic table (under the tree on the left) and the BBQ shelter (on the right) to the far end of the clearing, near another picnic table, to find the 'Sid Pulsford Walking Trail' sign[13].

(0.18 km) Northern end of picnic area to Int of Sid Pulsford Walking and Warriwarri Lookout trails
Walk: Easy - servicetrail
Length = 294 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 5 m Descent = -4 m
Continue straight: From the picnic area, this walk follows the 'Sid Pulsford Walking Trail' sign[14] around the locked gate and away from the clearing. The walk gently winds through the bush along the wide sandy trail, and comes to an intersection with a link track (heading up to the right) just after a large angophora.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the wide management trail north, past the large twisted angophora, coming to the 'Y' intersection marked by two signs[15] (just visible from the previous intersection).

(0.48 km) Int of Sid Pulsford Walking and Warriwarri Lookout trails to Warriwarri Lookout
Walk: Easy - servicetrail
Length = 287 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -19 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Warriwarri Lookout' sign[16] north along the wide sandy trail. The flat trail gently winds through the bush, passing an informal track (on the right) and soon coming to a small clearing, bench seat and signposted 'Warriwarri Lookout'[17], which offers limited views.

Warriwarri Lookout Alt = 160 m
Warriwarri Lookout is an overgrown and signposted[18] lookout in the middle of Kincumber Mountain Reserve. There is a fairly large clearing and a bench seat[19]. There are slightly better views north, past the sign at the unfenced rock outcrop. The filtered views look north-east. The view from the lookout is overgrown, so do not expect much in the way of views.
