An easy stroll through a fecund rainforest with ferns, lichen and fungi. The track follows the historic mining water race, crosses the Arthur River and becomes a staircase to a spectacular lookout of the cascading Philosopher Falls. The track is only 10km from Waratah and is a good introduction to the Tarkine/Takayna fauna and terrain.
