Albert River runs off the main border track. Very private hike with hardly any other hikers to be seen. Tracks run along the river with lots of waterfalls. Really enjoyed this one as a solo hike. Track is reasonably easy to spot.

HikingGreat!

Hard. Off track following old logging road then join Historic Nightcap Trail then onto a gravel road then off track again onto old logging roads. Creek scrambling, small rock climbs a bit of everything. Great adventure!

Beautiful rainforest walk with multiple waterfalls, spectacular view from Echo lookout as well. Dont forget though for the additional bonus you have 25kms of windy single lane roads to get to the top lol. Highly recommend.

CampingGreat!

We chose to do an overnight camp at Echo Point camp site as where travelling with 2x 11yrs olds. The hiking was slow going but the kids loved the "hike in hike out" adventure, although the last few kms were challenging.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful day walk and also as an overnight if you stay at Echo Point campsite. Spectacular night sky! Need to book campsite. Waterfalls, majestic ancient Antarctic Beech Trees, small easy river crossings. Was waiting for the dinosaurs to make an appearance! Not a difficult walk, but need to be able to complete the distance. A favourite walk.

Beautiful hike! The hours flew by and all of the waterfalls (and echo point look out) were beautiful! Made the mistake of wearing Timberlands so was covered in blisters but if I had decent hiking boots it would be very doable! Took us 7.5 hours but that’s with stops and we were super slow at the end due to sore feet. We wore gaiters to protect from leeches which worked a treat. Make sure you have waterproof shoe lining or spare socks.

Coming off the Birder Range Track it is a formed but not well maintained track. It is overgrown in parts but away to follow. The walking grade is medium to hard.

Very easy track, I accidentally went wrong way at beginning of loop but found my way and took me 5hrs to do 26km, conditions were nice and cool and saw two friendly king parrots

Excellent hike. Wet underfoot and surprisingly cold. Very peaceful. I do question the distance. At the entrance to the circuit it says 16km. Then when you add in 5.5km each way to Green Mountain Carpark?? My GPS clocked 29km (we did a little extra). Interested to know if the stated measurement includes return to Carpark? My GPS did lose signal a couple of times briefly, but that should only distort km time on a couple of points.

With the recent rains, the path was flooded in multiple places, there were many creek crossings that were quite deep, we scrambled over 3 fallen trees, under another 2 and around another half a dozen. There were land slides along the track to also be navigated. These conditions are to be expected given the amount of rain this area has received, but if you are not ready for a challenge hiking these difficult conditions, this hike is not for you. It is a very quiet track with no other hikers passed during our hike. The track itself and the park is absolutely beautiful with a number of waterfalls to be seen. We saw 4 blue crays in the creeks and on the path which was a highlight. I would definitely hike this track again when the conditions are a bit better as it is a fantastic hike! We clocked 21.5km in 5 1/2 hours. **Make sure to wear long clothing as the leeches are EVERYWHERE!**
