HikingScramble

Parked car at the Cougal Cascade then walked to the old Saw Mill which is about 1.2 k easy walk on sealed path, then 150 meters up the creek we looked for a trail at the sharp bend in the river, once we found this some good people had marked the trees with pink ribbons so we could find our track. Boyd’s View is much better than Cougal but very dangerous at the top. We did the entire circuit and was moderate in difficulty. Here is my video which may help. https://youtu.be/cdic-lWOVss

Short easy walk to look out and up to the old saw mill. Bitumen all the way. Easy for prams and children. Would be amazing after rainfall. Lots of people bathing in the sun and swimming in the pools.

WalkingGreat!

Super easy walk, fully paved path. Nice scenery though but very short as a 'hike'. Ended at the old saw mill which is far from 3.7km, not even half of that. This would be perfect to take dogs on leash along but not allowed...miss hiking with my dog.

Track not marked well, but easy to follow, lots of nice rock pools and would be great to come back in summer to have a swim

Short gentle walk that passes a beautiful waterfall and ends with a water mill. NB: I forgot to stop recording and so mist of this in recorded in the car - the walk only takes about 30 mins.

This is misleading and not a trail to Boyds Butte as the summit is much higher and further to the west at 581 metres. It is a tough, steep climb of 480m elevation gain from Cougal cascades carpark.
