Information

To start this walk, cross Mother Cummings Rivulet via the footbridge. The walk from here continues along an old Forestry track. The track has a gentle uphill climb, and about 25 minutes into your walk, you will reach a clearing which has a wooden sign advising you of different tracks to take in the region. Head west along Ironstone Track, which narrows considerably as it winds through the forest. It can be rocky underfoot so watch your step. Further on, the track narrows again as it descends to the first set of falls (Lower Chasm Falls). This part of the track can get muddy in wetter months. The falls here are small but very pretty. Continue upstream along the track a further 20 minutes, navigating over fallen branches and logs to reach Middle Chasm Falls, marked by yellow triangles off to the left of the main track. Taller than Lower Chasm Falls, with a deep emerald pool at the bottom and massive rock overhang above, Middle Chasm Falls is a good place to stop for lunch. The main track from here continues to ascend until it reaches the original site of the log bridge and Chasm Falls proper. For those wanting to walk further, a rough path has been rerouted to a point where it is possible to cross Smoko Creek. Directional markers are sporadic from here on and navigational aids are recommended past this point. Not far from the creek crossing, there is a track junction that invites the well-prepared walker upwards to Mt Ironstone or cross-country to The Dell at the foot of Bastion Bluff.
