This route actually follows a now disused & overgrown track from Blythe Homestead to the base of the escarpment below Tolmer Falls. It is best to treat it as an off trail walk because very little of the original track remains. From the waypoint "Start Climb' the escarpment is climbed - there was never a track here, but this is the easiest & safest route to the top. From there it is a relatively easy hike over rock & scrub to the creek crossing above the waterfall. Once over the creek near the bench a maintained & popular track leads to the carpark.
