Starting from the Crystal Cascades car park at the end of Redlynch Intake Road, this return walk takes you to the Copperlode Dam Lookout and picnic area, exploring the dense, humid rainforest along the way. Expect to be dazzled by the exceptional view over Lake Morris from the scenic picnic area near the dam. There’s no sugarcoating it, the first 1.7 kilometres of this walk is quite steep, but this only makes the view at the end sweeter. The track flattens out after the said waypoint, giving you some time to catch your breath and observe the scenery around you. You can finish the hike with a swim in the Crystal Cascades nearby. The track may become muddy in parts after rainfall. Keep an ear out for wild boars. 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.
