Weano is the northernmost of the three gorges which meet below Junction Pool lookout. Easy class 2/3 loop (either take shortcut straight down, or take "Upper Weano Gorge" trail that follows rim and then descends to easy flat walk along creek before meeting the more difficult final section (class 5) into Handrail Pool.

Use the handrail to lower yourself down the rock face into the pool (can stay dry on the rocky ledges quite safely). For the more adventurous, you can enter the chamber at the far end of the pool - and swim through icy water to reach another gorge. Ends at a roped off drop off into the abyss which is the Class 6 = abseil/rockclimb into Red Gorge.
