Starting from the Evercreech Forest Reserve at the end of Egans Road, Mathinna, this walk takes you past Evercreech Falls. Enjoy a short stroll through a beautiful ferny rainforest, following a typical bush track alongside Evercreech Rivulet to the base of the falls, where water cascades gently down a mossy slope. The waterfall is pretty, however it is seasonal and may only be a trickle in summer. The trail is relatively easy and mostly flat but has some slippery sections, so sturdy footwear is needed. The walk can be can extended by following the rivulet beyond the falls to find a more impressive waterfall, which requires a lot of rock hopping. Facilities at the picnic area include barbeques, toilets, sheltered tables and park benches. You can also stay overnight at the free campground, where there are several flat campsites with fire pits. It's best to avoid doing the loop after heavy rains as it involves crossing the rivulet by foot on the way back. 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.
