    A relaxing 12km hike through some beautiful Otway forest. While there weren’t constant ocean views like some of the other stages, the towering Mountain Ash forests were pretty special in their own way. The lush ferns and undergrowth really made you feel immersed in nature. At 4 hours, it was a nice leisurely walk – perfect for a morning stroll after a night at the Elliot Ridge campsite. This section is a great grade 3 hike for anyone wanting a break from the coast and a chance to experience the beauty of the Otway forests.
