    This track was absolutely magic! Counted at least a dozen different types of wild flowers, koalas, foxes lizards and brightly coloured beetles. It’s a must do in the area. I’ll definately be going back.

  • We did this magnificent walk yesterday. We went anticlockwise around the circuit in the park, but when you get to the pinnacle, the track is then closed not allowing you to complete the walk. The sign says they have closed the track from that point due to removing a footbridge for safety reasons. As the level in creeks was low at that time of year, we followed the track using accurate gpx map which was risky as you could hardly see the track. We got to the creek where the footbridge was and were able to step across rocks to the other side. We don’t recommend anyone else do this as it was very hard to follow the track.

    Decent trail… I hiked pretty much this entire route (Feb 2022) the bridge at “The Ponds” has been washed away and the trail says it’s closed, but as long as there hasn’t been raining heavy, the creek is small and easily jumped/forded (if you are travelling from Ingram’s Rock to the Woolshed Falls. I highly recommend the Mountain loop – Start at Powder Magazine sandstone building (edge of Beechworth) and go up to Ingram’s Rock, The Precipice, Spring Creek where The Ponds Track Crosses it (nice small pools there), The Cascades (really amazing), and the top of the Cascades where Gorge Rd crosses Spring Creek.

    The walk/trail from The Cascades to Woolshed Falls, is largely unspectacular… easy flat walk following the creek, some wooded areas, but a lot of the track is a small fire break rd along a fenceline onto cow country… only gets near the creek a couple of times. Good if you are up for a tramp, and early in the day or late in the arvo I imagine there would be roos or wallabies about… but mostly it’s not worth the walk.

    Woolshed Falls is pretty spectacular, and has lots of areas to explore, it does have carpark access, and bitumen rd to it, so if you are stuck for time, do the mountain loop at Ingram’s Rock / Cascades, and don’t worry about the Spring Creek walk to Woolshed Falls, just drive there later…

  • Great walk, went on the weekend of 22nd Jan, path closed between woolshed falls and deep creek due to recent flood damage to a section of path partially washed away. Great day!
