Devils Nose Hike, Para Wirra

About the Walking Trail

Enjoy this hike out along a long ridge to Devils Nose Lookout, with views along the ridge and lookout.

Begin this hike from:

  • the car park and trailhead on the west side of the lake (Lake Road West).
  • or another the car park on Para Wirra Drive (the main entrance road) – it is the first car park from the main entrance off Humbug Scrub Road.

The walk starts off along an easy fire track, before continuing along a walking trail. Along the walking trail there are some small rocky sections.

View the Devils Nose Hike Brochure.

Extend the Hike

Descend into Wild Dog Creek at the northern end of this hike, and glimpse views of Devils Nose from below as you gradually contour around on the ascent to the lookout.
