Route/Trail notes

The Salisbury Waters track is the main track through this part of the park and most of the other walks here branch off from this track.  Begin the walk above the falls and follow the track through woodland for 5km before the track takes a steep descend to the bottom of the gorge.  This is a really tough part of the track. the last 800 metres is the hardest.  The track surface here is loose in places.  Make sure that you take plenty of water and don't leave it too late to make your ascent back up the side of the gorge.

Incredibly steep.

We spoke to several people while we were there who had done this walk, and everyone agreed it was an absolute killer. The first 5km is fine, but the 2.2 back up the hill were shocking. The water hole was really nice, but most wondered if it was worth the walk.
