Moderate track
Starting from the parking area at the end of Mersey Hill Road, Mole Creek, this walk leads to the Alum Cliffs lookout via the Alum Cliffs Track. Enjoy a quiet country stroll to a forest lookout perched high above the Mersey River, as it flows beneath the Alum Cliffs. There are stunning views from the lookout, as the Mersey River rushes through a narrow, cliff-lined gorge. This short and easy 2km return walk gets you there with relative ease, having only one gentle climb at the beginning of the trail. The track is well defined and passes through dry forest and open bushland, stopping by a commissioned timber sculpture along the way. You can also combine this walk with a visit to the Mole Creek Caves. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
