Route/Trail notes

The path begins with many steps, ascending to 5 minutes short of the Wineglass Bay lookout, climbing the saddle between Mt Amos and Mt Mayson.  It then descends via many more stairs to Wineglass Bay.  From there, follow the track across the isthmus to Hazards Beach.  This part of the track is fairly level, and includes some sandy sections.  Then follow the beach towards the right until you reach the rocks at the other end.  Walk up onto the rocks, and you should soon see the track entrance that will take you back to the start.  The track is fairly easy to follow, and involves sandy and rocky sections.  It passes a number of small bays along the way.

Comments

This was a great coastal walk. While this track is longer than returning from Wineglass Bay via the same route, it is much easier due to the large number of steps that need to be ascended on the way back. Though the path should be easy to follow, we did lose it at one point by following a path it looked like others had taken. We soon found ourselves wondering which way to go next - a sure sign that we were off the track. We retraced ourselves and were surprised at how clear the real track was. We must have stepped over a branch that should have said "This is not the way".
