Information

The Leven Canyon Floor Track is a short, steep, and magical walk into the heart of Leven Canyon less than an hour from Devonport. The track is flat for the first few hundred metres before it dives steeply into the canyon to the base where the River Leven runs. The way down involves a lot of steps until you reach the bridge over the river, where you can see the canyon in all its glory. You continue up river to Devils Corner (or Devils Elbow) before returning along the same track. There are some rocky scrambles required during both the descent and ascent back to the carpark.Distance 1.9km to bridge return. Time: 1-2 hours. Grade 3. No facilities. Elevation Gain 131m. If you add on Devils Corner then 2 hours.Winter or Early spring is best to experience the river at its most powerful.
