Collins Cap and Myrtle Forest Falls
Starting from the car park at the end of Myrtle Forest Road, Wellington Park, this walk takes you past Myrtle Forest Falls to Collins Cap. The first section leads from the car park to the picnic area where the trailhead, toilets and picnic facilities are located. The trail then crosses a bridge and follows a stone path alongside Myrtle Forest Creek before reaching Myrtle Creek Falls, a small but scenic waterfall with a viewing platform. The trail continues climbing steadily as the environment changes from temperate rainforest to sub-alpine, eventually reaching a marked junction, with the right-hand fork continuing towards Collins Cap. At the summit, which is 1098 metres high, there are panoramic views of Collins Bonnet, Collinsvale, the Derwent Valley and the Mount Wellington plateau. Although the trail is steep throughout and rocky in sections, it's well-constructed and easy to follow. The walk enters a sub-alpine area towards the end, so warm and waterproof clothing is recommended. 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.
