RouteKnox Gorge Trail
NotesKnox Gorge is one of the most spectacular gorges in the national park, with classic deep-red colours. The gorge narrows to a dramatic slot canyon at the end which requires climbing skills to proceed into Red Gorge.

RouteWeano Gorge - Handrail Pool - Start of Magic Mile - Weano Gorge
NotesWeano Gorge leads to the ultimate rock pool at Handrail Pool (the handrail is a welcome addition in clambering down to the pool). It's possible to wade on further along the 'Magic Mile', but the going is difficult and requires some basic climbing skills. Trainers and narrow feet are useful for negotiating the rock ledges further along the 'Mile'. Nearby, Hancock Gorge provides relatively easy access to another beautiful pool, Kermit's pool along polished slot canyons.
