Starting near the Day Use Carpark on Fortescue Bay Road, Fortescue, this walk leads to Cape Hauy and back via the track of the same name. Enjoy this walk on a well-formed trail with fantastic views throughout its duration. It starts off by skirting the coast before climbing inland, through woodlands and heath containing an abundance of wildflowers. The forest then opens up, presenting the undulating slopes of Cape Hauy. The cape has spectacular dolerite columns that plunge directly into the sea, and there are extensive panoramic views that stretch far north past the Forester coast to Maria Island and south, detailing the ridges of Cape Pillar. The trail skirts close to cliff edges at points, and caution is advised. There are also some strong winds once you get out onto the headland. Be prepared for a lot of steps - walking poles make it easier on the knees. 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.
