Dist (kms)86Height gain (m) Route findingEasy
RouteMelaleuca - Freney Lagoon (N1) - Louisa River (N2) - Little Deadmans Bay (N3) - Prion Boat Crossing - Osmiridium Beach (N4) - Surprise Beach - Granite Beach (N5) - South Cape Rivulet (N6) - Cockle Creek
NotesAn old escape route for ship-wrecked sailors, this path crosses wild and remote scenery. Frequent rain and muddy sections make the path slippery in some places and tree-roots add to the ankle-wrenching possibilities (especially the western side of the Ironbounds). The route does however have a true wilderness feeling and a chance to be completely self-sufficient, and there's even the distraction of borrowing a rowing boat to cross New River Lagoon. It's worth checking for up-to-date information before setting off on this path as conditions and routes near the sandbar sections can change.
