Couldn't recommend this enough!!! Walked it in the middle of winter and although windy and rainy the scenery was absolutely breathtaking! I'm a local Portlander and didn't realize just how much of the area I hadn't seen! This trail takes you through many unique wilderness, sea, forest, rivers, cliff tops, volcanic coast line and pristine bushland! I will definitely do it again possibly in spring this time when the weather's a bit warmer

Best kept secret, this walk. I didn't find it difficult, heavy going on the beach if the tide is high, so would pay to check that out before you leave and make sure you are walking Discovery Bay on a low tide. Great diversity, you walk through forests, along a magnificent river, (which you can swim in), along a wild beach and then transverse spectacular cliffs. The walk had very few hikers, except the odd school group, or day walkers near settlements. Heaps of wildlife, both on land, in the air and in the sea! The camps are simple, (which is a welcome change from all the 'fancy' walks around these days), a shelter, open fire pit, tables and benches, rainwater and bush toilet. The track can be accessed at many points, so is a great walk to be able to do in sections. Highly recommend.
