About the Walking Trail
Hike along the course of the Alligator and Mambray Creeks. The hike explores the river red gum and native pine forests that line the creeks. The hike can be done one-way in 13km and 5 hours, or a return trip as a long day for fit hikers. Some people may leave a car at the start and one at the end.
With multiple campsites and route choices this hike is ideal to camp out along the way and walk a loop. Extend the hike by exploring Hidden Gorge and The Battery, or the Black Range.
