Peter Franks walks you by fire road from the old Sawmill on the Cudgegong to the denuded summit of the great mountain, then plunges down through the bush to Jones' Hole, and lock to the Sawmill across the pleasant flat country around Gavin'​s Swamp. The Northern Blue Mountains abound in formations to which the old timers gave the name of "​Holes"​. They occur in areas of volcanic soil or shale that has weathered away, leaving a "​hole"​ surrounded by sandstone, usually in the form of cliffs through which the stream finds its outlet by a narrowish opening. The soil being fertile, the trees are tall and straight and in marked contrast to those of the surrounding sandstone. Nobody seems to have knowledge of Jones' Hole, but it would undoubtedly be like the others.... well worth a visit. The Cudgegong usually has frosty nights and clear days in winter, so bring your woolies with you.
