The Cascades

GRADE: S (Or E if taking the round route).
TIME: 2 hours. (Or 3 hours round route).
DISTANCE: 5 km return. (8 km round trip).
TERRAIN: Easy path. (Undulating with a few steep parts on the round trip).

Take the campsite road from the casual car park (only campsite residents may take their car beyond this point). Walk along the road past the campsite. This joins the path to the Queen’s causeway and the Cascades. The arch over the river was built in 1947 for the visit by King George VI and his family. From there a good path leads to McKinlay’s Pool where the Gudu stream meets the Mahai. To make a round trip, although the going is very steep, take the path from the boulders near McKinlay’s Pool up towards Dooley. It joins the Tiger Falls-Gudu Bush path. Return via Tiger Falls or Gudu Bush.
