Central Coast

BLACK BLUFF

 

Black Bluff dominates the skyline from almost everywhere on the North West Coast.

 

2 hours from the start of the track will get you to Paddys Lake near the summit of the Bluff.  A pretty lake lined with pencil pines.

 

The track continues on to the summit.  A track at the eastern side of the lake leads to Winterbrook Falls.  20 minutes along the track to the summit there is a diversion off to the east.  10 minutes walk takes you to the rim of the escarpment overlooking the Winterbrook Falls forest reserve.  A spectacular site.  The track to the summit heads in the opposite direction.  10 minutes ascent provides commanding views of Cradle Mountain to the south.  The Penguin Cradle trail continues south.

 

The tracks are clearly marked.  The walk is relentlessly uphill virtually all the way apart from the first 20 minutes near the Leven River.
