Summary

This walk to Smiths Creek follows a wide trail for most of the way however it is well worth the walk for Smiths Creek is a lovely spot with open grasslands and a creek to explore. The optional side trip to Wilkins Viewpoint is also worthwhile with a fabulous view into Cowan Creek – consider including it on the return journey to break up the walk home.
