Such a great hike. One of my favourites as my family has been doing it for generations. What it lacks in distance it makes up for in both scenery and difficulty. There are three types of terrains - Forest, grassland and rocks. The forest floor is often muddy, and we usually carry gumboots for this section and leave them at the grassland section to collect on our way back. Over the years the signs have slowly disappeared so make sure you keep a close eye on rock piles to guide you.

IcyMuddyOff trailRockyScramble

I've done quite a few treks here in Tasmania and I've loved almost all of them thanks to proper research before each adventure. the journey: knowing what to expect plays a vital role in the outcome of this journey, so prepare for a walk through a thick rainforest a rocky, challenging mid and a thigh burning finish up a moderately steep boulder drop. all in all its going to give the casual hiker a bit of a hard time but it's not impossible to accomplish and the end result is worth every calorie burnt. navigation: before setting out I had a read about the markers and how it's easy to lose track of them,this is accurate it's pretty easy to lose track of a marker and veer off into other paths that look like previously hiked tracks.but this is no reason not to do this walk,like any other trek if you pay enough attention to you're surroundings you'll be fine. STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS APP FOR NAVIGATION AND ETA. time to complete: took us about 4 hours all up.....we took our time :D parking: location provided by this app was highly accurate for parking and locating start point.

Excellent trail can get soggy in places, could do with some maintenance especially in the land slip areas but outweighed by stunning rain forest

A good hike on a good but step track. Ribbons and cairns on top of the plateau but a bit sparse in some spots. one I'll do again purely because of the quality of the track

Very rough track, and very easy to get off track if you aren’t paying close attention to track markers. Very adventurous track though and a lot of fun. The track at the top to the lookout is very hard to find

The walk was great- was very flat. There are a number of fallen trees at present that make certain bits tricky. Ferns towards the end are overgrown so would recommend avoiding shorts unless thermals beneath. Waterproof shoes are necessary as there are sections of ankle deep mud (you can often skirt around the outside). Also at present the road to the start is closed which adds 5.5km each way (45 mins to 1 hour extra each way). This is not listed on Parks website unfortunately and does double the length of the walk (hence my recording including additional distance).

WalkingMuddyRocky

A great track for families of all ages. The track itself was quite muddy and in some places a cluster of rocks threatened to trip us up. The walk itself was relaxing as we followed the river through the luscious undergrowth. The falls were smaller than expected, but worth the walk. The viewing area below the falls were extremely slippery, so too the steep stairs leading to it. The directions to the falls were rather vague as the nav-man says to go up a private road, which was incorrect, and there wasn't many signs leading to People Park. But all in all it was a great way to end our time at Strahan.

Beautiful trail. Easy to follow and clearly marked. A little tough navigating over the rocks along the coastal part of the route. Beware of high and low tides when walking this section.

The walk to the falls was lovely. Continued on to Junction Cabin just over two hours return and about 8kms in total. The falls, while not huge, were beautiful.

Magnificent views and worth the effort. Extremely muddy in places but despite the scrambling track to the top basically being a small creek it is surprisingly not slippery. We didnt go around to lake herbert as the track at the fork looked quite dangerous and had washed away in places, however a bit further up track to the summit beyond the fork there is a section to the left off track where there is an easy shortcut to the lake herbert track where its formed and in good condition that we spotted on the way back down. No shade once you pass the tree line so you will need sunscreen and a hat
