Following the signposted track, it heads down the open dry ridge and into the dense rainforest. Visitors can explore the moist rainforest, home to towering eucalypts, strangler fig trees, cabbage palms (Livistona australis) and a tangle of vines. The walk leads up the rocky track to another dry ridge to follow a side-trip to a flat clearing and designated campsite. From here, the track winds down through another moist forest and past more cabbage palms before coming to the Ourimbah Valley Trackhead on Ourimbah Creek Road.
