Off State Highway 6 just before the slow right hand turn that takes you over the bridge at Wye Creek there is a gate with a DOC sign directing you towards the Wye Creek track. The carpark is in a paddock with a healthy climb up a 4WD service track & although it is possible to drive up and find a park at the trailhead the track is steep, rough and not for the fainthearted.
The track that takes you up into the lower Wye Valley and a starting point for some of the most challenging and dramatic climbing routes in the area is itself steep and technical in places. Although well trodden it retains it’s character with rocky, rooty, narrow off camber sections interspersed with some man-made help (simple wooden stairs) to make it a little more easy whilst following the pipeline.
If you veer right and cross the dam you will then follow a trail that sidles around a bushy covered knoll and brings you out onto the side of the hill. you traverse walking on the pipeline across the side of the hill which brings you to another small waterfall/dam and from here access to popular rock climbing routes. The view from the heli platform is in one word -STUNNING!
