This trail commences at the end of Gum Grove Trail. The walk starts along a dry rocky creek bed. It then leaves the creekline and climbs upwards. There is a variety of rugged terrain and plenty of birds to see along the way. Then you hit the main opening of Kotka Gorge where the trail ends. Go beyond that point and you enter the gorge, which is not recommended as it is prone to rock falls.
It will possibly take up to two hours to complete this walk due to the rocky, steep in parts, terrain. It is vital to take plenty of drinking water, even in cooler winter months.
Here is everything you need to know before visiting this trail.

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.
