Hard track
Starting at the Beehive Falls Car park on Roses Gap Road, this walk leads past the Beehive Falls to Briggs Bluff and back along a well-maintained and marked track. Enjoy a hike over rocks alongside the cliff tops, with beautiful views over the Grampians all the way to the plateau. Take a walk to the base of the falls, where seasonal rains fill fern-lined rock pools. This area makes for a peaceful resting spot. Moving on from Beehive Falls, the track immediately becomes steeper. Although short, this walk is challenging, with the terrain varying between flat, rocky, sandy and steep. The walk to Briggs Bluff can involve water crossings, slippery track surfaces, rock hopping and rock scrambling. Visit the Beehive Falls after rain for the best views, and in spring to see the wildflowers. Keep in mind that the rocks on the trail can get very slippery after rain. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
