Starting from the car park at the end of Crosswells Road, Snug Tiers Nature Recreation Area, this walk takes you to Pelverata Falls. Enjoy a pleasant hike through the Snug Tiers to Pelverata Falls, one of Tasmania's tallest waterfalls, cascading 114 metres down a vertical dolerite gorge. Leaving the car park, the trail initially passes alongside farmland before entering dense eucalyptus forest. Boardwalks cover some of the muddy areas as the trail meanders through a section of rainforest, and towards the end, handrails are provided at some steep rocky areas. The trail climbs along a large rock spree before a short steep descent towards the lookout platform, which provides an excellent view of Pelverata Falls and the creek below. The falls are particularly impressive after heavy rains and are often drier in the summer months. Below the lookout is a steep side trail leading down to the creek, recommended only for experienced bushwalkers as the rocks are dangerous and slippery, especially in wet conditions. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
