we did the O'Briens - backtrack - the tunnel.

it took about 2 hours - we were stopping frequently and taking photos.

This is a rocky hike with a couple steep hills.

I was expecting to see river , did I read wrong ? Or perhaps suffering from draught.

Once you turn off from the main road, it takes about 10 minutes. It's very rocky, 4WD is recommended.

There isn't much information on which route to take or how to take the chosen route so you should do your research before you get there.

for example, when we got to the tunnel we weren't sure if the track continued so we just made our way back.

Difficulty level is medium as steep hills and the tracks aren't guarded.

hard but highly rewarding trail. for experienced bush walkers. brilliant view of waterfalls, great swimming holes in summer.

Well maintained track, steady incline fire trail almost all the way to the cafe. Turn left at the crosspath at around 21km or you will have to walk along the road for a km or so to get to the cafe, which is quite unsafe. Not overly picturesque but a good fitness trail.

Easy and well established trail for all ages. Picturesque.

Astonishing views from the summit after a hard and challenging climb through the rocks. It can get very crowded during public holidays.
Not for the fainted heart. Inexperienced hikers take care as the climb before the summit it is hard and very steep.

Some parts of the climb are tough but worth it for the stunning views of Wineglass and Coles Bay from the summit. Take water and a snack. Some parts are slippery.

Great short and easy track to do in a couple of hours. You can do both the top of the hill and the sand beach bay. Good for pictures of a beautiful beach with no people and rough sea landscapes. Be careful with the blowhole.

Great walk to the amazing beach

Definitely harder than easy! Moderate difficulty at least, but beautiful. Highly recommend

Probably the premier walk in the Stirling Ranges National Park. Quite steady inclines. Some would prefer to have walking sticks with them as the steps and rock slopes are pretty steep at times. Good to have some fitness. Take plenty water, and cold gear etc in case the weather turns. There is snow on the top of Bluff Knoll transiently most winters. Excellent views looking westward across the other Stirling Ranges peaks.

Beautiful views

We did 25km loop (look at the photo) in 8 hours with 1 hour of stops. Was a bit taught but a lot of fun.

I’ve done this walk many times over the years and it’s always a great day out. I recommend going clockwise - dropping into the creek first and walking up the creek before returning along the border track. That way you are looking towards the numerous waterfalls as you approach them. Also, going clockwise, the second half of the hike is gentle, along the relatively flat escarpment and then an easy gradual descent along the border track. Going anti-clockwise leaves you with a long steep climb at the end of the day, but had the advantage that, for some reason, most people go this direction so you come across less people during the day.

Nice hike. We did the loop heading towards Crystal Falls first, then continued the full way around. It was quite busy on a public holiday! We got there early, but by the time we left the car park was completely full!

The hill coming back up in the direction we went can be a bit of a struggle, and seems to keep going up hill the whole way past the second waterfall.

Love the track took us a little over six hours to do. The best time to leave is early morning and walk into wine glass bay first so you can get the best pictures. To really enjoy it though you can camp along the track in numerous camping grounds and make three days of it

Excellent hiking trail. You'll see the most beautiful scenery of emerald green rivers full of jumping fish, gorgeous bush, and rockery. Apart from a small part of the hike involving climbing over tree trunks, creeks and rocks, the hike is moderately easy and just plain STUNNING.

Really great trail! Has some nice steep hills to keep you challenged throughout! Pet friendly and running friendly!
Keep a close eye out at the top of the trees, you may even spot a koala.

Amazing ridge but we found this apps dotted line not accurate. Many times we sat directly on it and there was no sign of a trail. Some more descriptions are needed. We hiked up all the ridge scaling up and down each peak. Tuff but amazing day. And hiked out another way due to time

A reasonably level walking trail with only a few slight rocky inclines further in.

If you are hiking with children like we were, once you reach Cooks Nose make sure to hang on to them as the lookout is unfenced.

Amazing waterfall, well worth the trek

Great workout for family. Enjoy the walk trail.

Great walk not too steep. Did it during a very Sun day and it was fine

Great small trail

my new favourite track because of beautiful nature, a lot of path options to explore and mainly because I was allowed to take my dog. we had such a good time exploring the area.

Going up Hillclimb Track is a fun challenge, would be slippery coming down when wet. Beautiful Stringy Bark forest, great for family.

Great walk in an amazing forest of Stringy Bark. The falls are small, but the walk is great, the air smells fresh, good for kids.

Fun stair climb, gets your heart pumping. Bit slippery in the wet, too busy on weekends. Nice place for picnic or visit Waratah Cafe in Upper Ferntree Gully afterwards for great meal.
