Moderate track
From Monda Rd parking, Toolangi, this circuit walk heads north along Tanglefoot Loop track. Walking among the tall Mountain Ash trees and past beautiful ferns you'll fill your lungs with fresh air. There are several creek crossings along the way as Sylvia Creek tributaries gently flow through the forest. 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.
