Comments

We walked this track as the second part of a circuit of all three tracks in this area and joined it on the right hand side of the track upstream from the waterfall. The view over the waterfall is ok, but not outstanding. The incline after that was quite steep that took us to the other lookout which was quite good. After going in to the day use area for a toilet stop we backtracked down the track we'd just come down to take a link track on the left which took us to the Antarctic Beech track.
