This trail takes walkers away from the car park down a wooden staircase to the pristine white sandy shores, clear green water and striking granite boulders of Greens Pool. Walkers have two options: either take the protected path through the shrub towards Elephant Cove or the more exposed route along the boulders which provides spectacular views back over Greens Pool and beyond the rocks of the vast Southern Ocean.

At the end of both trails walkers will find themselves on a rocky clearing overlooking the magnificent Elephant Cove, a protected bay with huge rock formations. A great destination for swimming and a lunch time pit stop.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
