This track is posted as easy, but there are quite a few stairs and the track is quite overgrown in parts.  At river crossings, care is needed to ensure you are on the right track at the other side as it can be a tad deceptive. Nice waterfalls scattered on the track.

HikingGreat!

I did this hike with a friend, months before the end of last year. We were at the start of our bushwalking experiences. It was a lovely full day but very rewarding to have worked out that we could try trickier tracks. It was great to have a combination of waterfalls, Elevation, some trickier navigation and it was quiet. We didn't see anybody else until the end of our exploration.

Bit of bushbashing here and there. Lovely waterfalls. Fire trail leads back to car park.

HikingGreat!Muddy

I found it a tough but awesome walk. The trail is well defined but narrow, as wide as your legs in some points ... if you do the entire empire pass loop there are 3 or 4 creek crossing 08-01-2021- Track is muddy and creek and falls have heaps of water flowing at the moment, feet will be wet. I used a large stick as a counter balance and to ensure momentum on the steeps sections and creek crossings didn’t do me any harm. Good, tough walk in sections

beautiful trail, rainforesty and lush. The little waterfalls along the way are beautiful. There is a chunk of firetrail at the end which isn't so beautiful. I wasn't sure how long it would take as everyone's time recordings varied considerably but it only took 1hr 20 at a steady average pace. some comments alluded to the trail being overgrown but it's not. some overhanging vegetation in places but well maintained trail.

Very pretty track, but definitely pretty steep coming out. Signage could be clearer, as track is overgrown. But lovely waterfalls.

Love the bush walk! Started bright and early and after some rain the night before, knew it would be a little wet. 2 very easy to get to and in short time waterfalls which were gorgeous! Got to another 2 a bit later after a long walk. I loved that there were carvings from people back to 1883 - Amaze and really gets you thinking about the history of the place. Gorgeous! The walk out of the bush and on dirt roads included some big hills however, a bit of exercise can do you some good.

Great track with plenty of worthwhile detours to waterfalls. Track is quite bushy and muddy in sections so be prepared. Well worth the effort though with very few other hikers around.

First to Review

Easy to follow path which is narrow is sections. The weather was perfect, just right for a hike. The path was muddy in sections. Good to have hiking boots to keep your feet dry. The waterfalls were beautiful and definitely worth the walk. I also loved it as there weren’t too many people on the track it was nice, peaceful and relaxing
